HISTORY

The first settlers appeared in this area already 10 thousand years BC. The first records about this place, however, are from the late Middle Ages. The commune was then ruled by the Teutonic Order. As a result of partitions of Poland the region was joined to Prussia and remained within its borders until the outbreak of the First World War.
In the interwar period Poland was in deep crisis and so was Lysomice Commune. Village settlement remained in stagnation, properties of land owners were minimised and the greatest manors in the commune (in Lysomice, Turzno and Lipniczki) fell into decay.
Another catastrophe for the region was the outbreak of the Second World War. Germans came here on 6 September 1939. Properties were robbed and people murdered. In all, during the war Nazis killed approximately 100 inhabitants of Lysomice Commune. The number of those deported to extermination and labour camps is not known.
Lysomice Commune came to existence as a result of joining Lulkowo and Turzno Districts. At first Turzno was the commune’s seat, but in 1972 the seat was moved to Lysomice.
