The Warsaw Voice

It has been described as "the most authoritative English-language newspaper" published in Warsaw.[1]

It was created by Polish TV-presenter and journalist Andrzej Jonas.[2] Jonas served as editor-in-chief with Slawomir Majman as deputy editor in chief.[3]

For the first few years of its history, it was the only (and the first) English-language newspaper published in Poland.[4]

After the fall of communism in 1989, many Western European companies started to expand heavily in or come to Poland, such as the American Coca-Cola, the French Carrefour and Auchan, the German Volkswagen and the Dutch Philips (then lamps), ING bank and Makro wholesalers. The expat community in Warsaw and surroundings quickly grew to some tens of thousands. The Voice caters specially to their needs, offering primarily economic, political and cultural news and background. The Voice concentrates its reporting on Warsaw and surroundings. From 1992 until 1998 The Voice had one foreign correspondent, Arthur Graaff in Amsterdam, because of the leading Dutch investments in Poland.[5]
