National League (Poland)

National League (National Democracy movement. Its main ideologues were Roman Dmowski, Jan Ludwik Popławski and Zygmunt Balicki.[1]

Its goals were formation of modern Polish nation and regaining of Polish statehood in the long run. It supported the idea of solidarity of all social classes in order to strengthen the national idea. National League, organizing mostly young intelligentsia,[2] aimed at mobilizing Polish youth and awakening Polish peasants to take active part in public life.[2] The organization was opposed to the idea of class struggle and the activities of national minorities in Poland. It published the Przegląd Wszechpolski (The All-Poland Review) and Polak (The Pole) newspapers in Lwów.

After Poland regained its independence in 1918, the National League remained active and supported newly created National Democratic political parties. In 1928 it was disbanded and incorporated into the structures of the National Party.
