The deceased was a member of the Polish resistance against the German occupation, forming part of the Armia Krajowa (AK, National Army). He took part in the Warsaw Uprising of 1944, being taken prisoner by the Germans. He managed to escape, briefly joining the Yugoslav resistance and later reaching Italy, where he joined the 3rd "Karpathic" Rifle Division of the Second Polish Corps, under the orders of Lieutenant General Władysław Anders, being demobilized in 1947, after which he went into exile in the United Kingdom. He had been living in Spain for many years, where he met his wife, having 4 children and 8 grandchildren. He resided in Alicante, where he was buried this Tuesday.

The funeral was attended by the Polish Military Attaché in Spain, Captain Dorota Stachura, and members of the "Poland First to Fight" Historical-Cultural Association wearing Polish uniforms from World War II. During the burial, Dąbrowski's Mazurka, the Polish National Anthem, was played.
