Ludwik Abramowicz 1879%E2%80%931939
Ludwik Abramowicz-Niepokójczycki (1879-1939) was a Polish activist, bibliophile, publicist and editor. He was one of the major activists of the krajowcy faction, living in Vilnius (Vilna in Russian).
Born in Moscow, he studied in Kharkiv and Kraków. In 1906 he moved to Vilnius.
During World War I, while living in Poland, he actively supported Lithuanian independence. There he was active contributor to Gazeta Wile?ska, founded by Micha? Römer. Later he was an editor of Polish language newspaper Przegl?d Wile?ski (Wilno Review, 1912-1913, 1921-1939). The newspaper promoted krajowcy views and developed Lithuanian cultural ideas separate from Polish culture. After Abramowicz returned to Vilnius in 1919, he actively promoted the idea, that Vilnius Region should be transferred to Lithuania without tying Lithuania to union with Poland, although he suggested a cultural autonomy for Poles. The issues of the Przegl?d Wile?ski newspaper were confiscated many times by local authorities.
Abramowicz held active correspondence with Lithuanian Jonas ?li?pas and other Lithuanian activists. Abramowicz delivered a speech at Jonas Basanavi?ius' funeral.
