Adolf Warski, born Jerzy (or Adolf) Warszawski (April 20, 1868, Warsaw, Russian Partition - August 21, 1937, Moscow), was a Polish communist leader, journalist and theoretician of the communist movement in Poland. Warski was born into an assimilated Polish Jewish parents. His father Saul, a commercial clerk, changed the name to Stanisław. Warski was active in the communist movement from 1889, becoming a member of the executive of the Social Democracy of the Kingdom of Poland and Lithuania (SDKPiL), and participated in the 1905 Russian Revolution. From 1918 he was a member of the Communist Party of Poland (KPP) and in 1926 was elected as a member of the Polish Parliament (Sejm). Warski held positions in the KPP's Central Committee (1919–29) and Politburo (1923-29, with an interruption), but then left Poland for the Soviet Union where he lived from 1929 until his death. He was an atheist. An opponent of the Stalinisation of the KPP and of the Communist International, Warski was arrested during the Great Purge, in early 1937, and executed. He was fully rehabilitated in 1956, during the De-Stalinization process that followed Joseph Stalin's death, and the Szczecin shipyard, Stocznia Szczecińska Nowa, was renamed in his honor (Stocznia im. Adolfa Warskiego) by the authorities of the People's Republic of Poland.
