Andrzej Pomian, who died in Washington, D.C., in 2008 at the age of ninety-seven, was a Polish émigré journalist and author
who worked for many years for Radio Free Europe. During World War II, he was a ranking officer in the Information and Propaganda
Bureau of Poland's clandestine Stowarzyszenie Polskich Kombatantów or Home Army, the largest underground organization in Nazi-occupied
Europe. Extracted from Poland in April 1944 in one of the most spectacular air operations of the war, Pomian spent the next
ten years with the Polish government in exile in London before moving to the United States.
