Biographical Note

Andrzej Prusiński was born on March 18th, 1941 in Kórnik, near the city of Poznań. After completing his primary school education, Prusiński attended secondary school at the renowned Gimnazjum im. Adama Asnyka in Kalisz. In 1959 he graduated and successfully passed the entrance exams for the Astronomy program at the University of Toruń. In 1963 Prusiński relocated from Toruń to Poznań and attended the Adam Mickiewicz University until his graduation in 1966
It was also in 1966, that Andrzej Prusiński won the Polskie Radio Poznań national competition for radio announcers which started off his career in radio. While at Radio Poznań, Prusiński’s career flourished as is evident by his work in various capacities: announcer, journalist, and a radio broadcaster. He later decided to pursue a professional degree in journalism at the University of Warsaw. Prusiński never completed his degree because in 1980, along with his wife and daughter, he immigrated to West Germany to pursue a job with the Polish branch of Radio Free Europe (RFE), which he secured in 1982. There, he worked as a broadcaster until its closing on June 30th, 1993.
While still working for RFE, he became involved with Zjednoczenie Polskich Uchodźców w Niemczech (Union of Polish Refugees in Germany), and eventually became one of its leaders. He was also appointed as the Member of Parliament in West Germany for the Polish Government-in-exile, by the President of Poland-in-exile, Edward Bernard Raczyński.
Currently, Prusiński resides in Munich, Germany.
