Józef Batory

Captain Józef Batory (noms de guerre "Argus", "Wojtek") was born in 1914 in Werynia, Poland.

He fought in the 1939 Polish September Campaign, then was an active member of the anti-German resistance. In the early 1940s he became commandant of the Kolbuszowa district of the Home Army.

From 1945 on, Batory became a leading member of the anti-Communist organization Wolnosc i Niezawislosc. Apprehended by the Communist Polish secret police, the UB, some time in late 1940s, he was executed on the evening of March 1, 1951 in the infamous Mokotów Prison in Warsaw.

The location of his grave is unknown. His body was never returned to his family.
