This article presents the most important issues surrounding the course of the Spanish Flu in Poland and the efforts and knowledge of professionals about the etiology of this dangerous disease during that time. It provides information about unsuccessful attempts to combat the flu in urban and rural areas and research on the disease in different scientific centers of the country. Hopefully, this also partly enriches the scientific literature devoted to the Spanish Flu. Until today, there has been very little published or studies undertaken by specialists dealing with the cause and spread of pandemic diseases among the peoples of Central and Eastern Europe.
