Theosophy was on an upswing in Poland at the time and continued to flourish up to World War II. Records show that after obtaining a Charter from Adyar in 1923, by 1925 Poland had twelve Lodges with a total of 219 members.


Organised Theosophical activity ceased during the communist period but evidence that interest in Theosophy continued is showed by our contact with Czapnik Wladyslaw of Krakow in 1957
