Grave of Gajcy at Powązki Military Cemetery

Tadeusz Stefan Gajcy (Polish pronunciation: ; 8 February 1922, Warsaw - 16 August 1944, Warsaw) was a Polish poet and Armia Krajowa (Polish Home Army) soldier.

He co-founded and edited the bibuła literary magazine, Sztuka i Naród. He debuted in the underground press in 1942 and is considered to have been the most notable member of the "Generation of Columbuses," after Krzysztof Kamil Baczyński.

Like Baczyński, Gajcy died in the Warsaw Uprising of August–October 1944.

On August 2, 2009, President Lech Kaczyński posthumously awarded Gajcy the Commander's Cross of the Order of Polonia Restituta for outstanding contribution to the independence of the Polish Republic and for achievements in the development of Polish culture.
