HISTORY

First records about the current area of Komorniki are from 1136. At the turn of the 13th century the terrains were granted German law. The villages with German law were: Gluchowo (1301), Komorniki (1286-1297), Plewiska (1335) and Wiry (1357). Most of the terrains of Komorniki Commune belonged to Poznan bishop; it was only during the partitions of Poland that private ownership developed.
In the 19th century inhabitants of these terrains strongly opposed germanization and Komorniki remained Polish sanctuary. In the 1880s there were protests against removing teaching of the Polish language from the local school. One of the fiercest defenders of the Polish language was priest Ksawery Malinowski.
In 1900 parish priest of Komorniki Stanislaw Gladysz together with Leon Plucinski established civic organisation and in the interwar period its patriotic function was taken over by the Sokol organisation.
