Languages of publication
In October 2013, the 150th anniversary of Stanisław Zaremba birth was celebrated. Zaremba was one of the most eminent Polish mathematicians in history and a scientist of great achievements for Polish mathematics and for the Jagiellonian University. In the poster ”Polish mathematicians” published in 1982 by Springer Verlag on the occasion of the International Congress of Mathematicians in Warsaw, only the pictures of Banach and Sierpiński are greater than Zaremba’s photo. Without any doubts Zaremba is regarded as the best Polish mathematicians of the turn of XIX and XX century. Nevertheless, his great role for the development of Polish mathematics seems to be forgotten. In the paper there are briefly described the life of Zaremba, his achievements in science, teaching and his role in the International Mathematical Union and the Polish Mathematical Society.
