Andrzej Twardzicki obituary

My cousin Andrzej Twardzicki, who has died aged 94, came to the UK after fighting with the Polish resistance during the second world war and settled in Britain, where he became an engineer and then an academic, lecturing at Queen Mary University of London and running postgraduate courses at Imperial College London.

Andrzej was brought up in Kraków but born in Lwów, in the Ukrainian part of what was then the new republic of Poland, to Jadwiga (nee Siedlecka), who worked for the Red Cross as a translator, and her husband, Tadeusz, an adviser to the Polish ministry of agriculture.
