This article is dedicated to Włodzimierz Truszczyński, a Polish master organ builder active in the second half of the 20th century. The author discusses the historical background of concern including the situation of Polish organ building in the difficult socio-political reality after the Second World War. He also outlines the activities of the most important Polish organ building firms, Biernacki’s and Kamiński’s, describes the most important instruments built by them, and clarifies the situation of organ building in Pomerania, Greater Poland, and Silesia. Next, the author discusses the story of Włodzimierz Truszczyński’s life and organ building activities since in-depth and exhaustive studies on this subject have not yet been developed and the only scholarly work on this topic is the author’s Master’s thesis. Due to the lack of printed sources, much information included in the article comes from the archives of the Truszczyński family and from oral accounts. In Włodzimierz Truszczyński’s plant, one of the first in Poland to build mechanical organs, about 180 instruments of different types were built.
