AB - <p>In the paper I try to describe the phenomenon of the Polish School of Mathematics. It requires the presentation and analysis of the many factors that have had an influence on its creation and development. It is impossible to do so in such article yet I try to show, however, its essence and strength through an analysis up until the point that World War II brutally ended its development. I focus on the mathematicians who were forced to emigrate and created important mathematical centres in other countries. Thus, the program and atmosphere of Polish Mathematical School was continued.</p>
