This chapter considers the life of the late Jerzy Turowicz (1912–1999). Turowicz played a key role in the preservation of liberal values in Poland and in its re-emergence as a democratic and pluralistic state. As the long-standing editor of the independent Catholic weekly Tygodnik powszechny, he aired matters which were taboo in the official press, and also attempted to move the Polish Catholic Church to a more open and tolerant view of the world. This was not always an easy task. In 1951, he became editor of the paper, which was founded in 1945, and retained this position until his death, with only one hiatus. After the death of Stalin he was removed from his position because of his refusal to publish an obituary of the Soviet dictator, and the weekly was handed over to the pro-government Catholic grouping Pax. Turowicz returned as editor only in December 1956 after the Polish ‘October’ and the establishment of a national communist regime under Władysław Gomułka.
