The Academic Committee for the Defence of Plebiscite Lands of Warmia, Masuria and Upper Silesia was active and successful at the University of Lublin. It was one of the developmental stages of the Academic Committee for the Defense of Plebiscite Areas, established at the University of Lublin on 30 May 1920. The Academic Committee conducted a variety of actions, all the while aiming at providing material assistance to the uprisings, spreading a sense of connection of the Lublin inhabitants with the Upper Silesian people and maintaining the state of eagerness to cooperate with them in the fight for their rights. At the Bytom Commissariat in Silesia, the University of Lublin was represented before the plebiscite by Sandomierz clerics and simultaneously students of canon law at the University of Lublin: Stefan Grelewski and Józef Sznuro. They worked in Upper Silesia first as teachers and then in the Press Department of the Polish Plebiscite Commissariat in Bytom. The most intense period for the Academic Committee was the time between 10 May and June 1921. They intensified their efforts by engaging in various types of activities. A great fundraiser was held at the time, readings and rallies were organised as signs of support for Silesian insurgents. The Academic Committee dissolved in July 1921.
