The history of the village dates back to medieval Poland. Its name comes from the Polish words nie zdrowy ("not healthy"). Between 1871 and 1945 it was part of Germany. In 1936, during a massive Nazi campaign of renaming of placenames, it was renamed Neubrücken to remove traces of Polish origin. In the final stages of World War II, in January 1945, the Germans executed a group of prisoners of the Auschwitz concentration camp in the village.[2] After the war the village became again part of Poland and its original name was restored.
