Ignacy Schwarzbart

Ignacy Izaak Schwarzbart[1] (13 November 1888 in Chrzanów - 26 April 1961 in New York City) was a prominent Polish Zionist,[2] and one of two Jewish representatives on the Polish National Council of the Polish Government-in-Exile during the Second World War, along with Szmul Zygielbojm.[3]

Schwarzbart and Zygielbojm played key roles in highlighting reports of Nazi atrocities against Jews in occupied Poland.[4] In 1942 Schwarzbart held a press conference in London alleging that 1 million Jewish people had already been killed. The figures were reported in the media but were treated sceptically by both the British and by some other Polish politicians.[5]
