Jerzy Urban (1933-1922) was a Polish journalist, writer, commentator and politician. He was born as Jerzy Urbach to a Polish-Jewish family in Lodz. After the Second World War outbreak, he fled with his parents the German-occupied Lodz to the Soviet-controlled Lviv. After the German army invaded Lviv in the summer of 1941, the family went into hiding and survived the war under the false name "Urban."
