Visit of Subhas Chandra Bose to Poland in July 1933. New documents. New Conclusions
Subhas Chandra Bose visited Poland in July 1933. There were so far practically no sources to find what the purpose of the visit was.
Why did he decide to go to Poland? The only information existing in this respect was that Bose had meetings with the orientalists of the academic centres.
Basing on the documents of the Embassy of Poland in Vienna, Consulate of Poland in Bombay as well as original letters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland and other central state institutions in Poland, all from the years 1933-1936, I have come to the conclusion that the purpose of Bose’s visit to Poland was well defined but the ideas he had in mind about Indo-Polish relations could materialise only after almost four decades.
The paper should be read together with the original documents which are included in original Polish version and in English translation.
