This chapter tells the story of the Towarzystwo Rozwoju Handlu, Przemysłu i Rzemiosł (the Society for the Advancement of Trade, Industry, and Crafts; Rozwój or Advancement for short). Its establishment was the high point of the campaign to put in place a framework for the economic boycott. No advance information about the founding of the organization was published. In mid-June 1913 an announcement was published stating that the governor’s commission on unions and associations had confirmed the society’s statute. The announcement emphasized the significance of the founding of such an organization. A few days later the statute was published. The society’s purpose, as formulated in the statute, was in accordance with its name: ‘The Society has as its aim the cooperative advancement of industry, crafts, and trade among Christian people, mutual aid in this direction for members of the Society, and the support of the industrial, craft, and trading activities of the Society’.

Keywords:   trade, industry, crafts, economic boycott, Christian people, organizational history, Rozwój
