The 'cursed (or doomed) soldiers' (Polish: Żołnierze wyklęci) is a name applied to a variety of Polish resistance movements that were formed in the later stages of World War II and afterwards. Created by former members of the Polish underground resistance organizations of WWII, these organizations continued the struggle against the pro-Soviet government of Poland well into the 1950s. Most of these groups ceased operations in the late 1940s or 1950s. However, the last 'cursed soldier', Józef Franczak (Nickname: Laluś), was killed in an ambush as late as 1963, almost 20 years after the Soviet take-over of Poland.
