Ksawery Pruszynski

Ksawery Pruszynski was a radical journalist who had lost his own home in what is now Byelorussia. After serving with the forces in Scotland, he became a diplomat and – although never a Communist – returned to Poland after the war to serve the new Communist-dominated government at the United Nations and then as ambassador to the Netherlands. But Soviet intelligence never trusted him, and in 1950 he was killed in a car crash in Germany which may not have been an accident.
