Background
Aleksander Pruszyński is a Polish, Canadian and Belarusian journalist and collector. He was born on May 4, 1934 in Rohoźnica, in what is now Western Belarus. Pruszyński is an ethnic Pole born of an aristocratic family and holds the title of a Count. Pruszyński’s father was the famed Ksawery Pruszyński: journalist, writer and diplomat. Aleksander Pruszyński holds a triple citizenship: Polish, Belarusian and Canadian. Though his political campaigns were unsuccessful, he is well known as an electoral candidate both in Poland and Belarus. Pruszyński’s primary career focus is writing and political journalism. In the 1980s he published a Polish émigré newspaper in Toronto, “The Polish Express,” and still actively publishes articles and brochures primarily for the Toronto branch of the “Goniec,” a weekly Polish magazine.
