He was born Ludwik Dornbaum,[1] to Jewish parents,[2] Henryk Dornbaum, a socialist activist and Alina née Kugler, a doctor. All of his father's family was murdered during the Holocaust.[3] In the 1960s Dornbaum family changed their name to Dorn. He was raised agnostic, but he converted to Roman Catholicism at the age of 51.[3]

From 31 October 2005 to 7 February 2007 he was Minister of Interior and Administration, resigned after conflict with the Prime Minister Jarosław Kaczyński.[4] Elected a Marshal of the Sejm on 27 April 2007, with 235 votes, after Marek Jurek's resignation.

On 4 November 2011 he, along with 15 other supporters of the dismissed PiS MEP Zbigniew Ziobro,[5] left Law and Justice on ideological grounds to form a breakaway group, United Poland.[6]
