Waclaw Sieroszewski

Author Code: OWKS

Born: Aug. 24, 1858 - Wolka Kozlowska, Poland

Died: Apr. 20, 1945 - Piaseczno, Poland

Already from an early age, Sieroszewski was a rebel and was expelled from the gymnasium by the Russian authorities when he was in his fifth year. He was arrested in 1878 and imprisoned. He took part in a prisoner's rebellion that resulted in an 8 year prison sentence, that was changed to exile and settlement in Siberia. Over the next few years he worked at odd jobs. He was again exiled to Siberia where he began to write ethnographic accounts of the Yakuts, a tribe which accepted him into their commune in 1890. In 1892, he received a settlement passport which allowed him to settle in Irkutsk. From there, he moved to Saint Petersburg. In 1900, he published Twelve Years in the Country of the Yakut. Later that year, he was arrested for taking part in a demonstration in Warsaw. The years 1903 to 1904 were spent travelling in southern Asia and Egypt. From 1910 to 1914, he lived in Paris. At the outbreak of war, he joined the 1st Regiment of Polish Legions. He was released in 1915 due to old age. He then led the National Independence Party and became minister of information and propaganda in the Polish Provisional People's Government of the Republic of Poland. In 1928, he was awarded honorary membership of the Siberian Association. In 1933 he became a member of the Polish Academy of Literature. He served in the Republic of Poland as a senator from 1935 to 1938. He lived in Warsaw during the Nazi occupation. Sieroszewski is as well-known for his ethnographic works as he is for his novels. These works include In Autumn (1884), In the Forests (1894), Risztan (1899), The Bottom of Poverty (1900), In Sacrifice to the Gods (1900), Escape (1904), In Claws (1918), Chains (1919) and Topiel (1921).
