History

Social movement of the Deaf was launched in Poland in the period of 1876-1918. The very first association called Galician Association of the Deaf “HOPE” was founded on July 7th 1876 in Lviv. In 1883 in Warsaw the Christian Association of the Deaf “Providence” was established and its goal was to organize social and cultural life of its members, helping the elderly, sick and unemployed and also to provide financial support if needed.
Until regaining the independence in 1918 there were 7 associations that gathered the Deaf living on the polish territory. In 1909 the Christian Mutual Aid Association for the Deaf “Mutuality” was founded in Łódź. It was directed by the deaf activist Władysław Kranas who was also a co-founder of the school for the deaf children in Łódź.
