Hugon Hanke

Hugon Hanke (1904 – December 19, 1964) was a Polish politician, best known for being a Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland in Exile (in 1955) and his unexcepted return to the communist-ruled country while serving as PM.

He was involved in politics during time of Second Polish Republic before World War II. He was an active member of the Christian Workers Union (Chrześcijańskie Związki Zawodowe) and of the Labour Party (Stronnictwo Pracy) in Silesia.
