Antoni Andrzej Łyko (27 May 1907 in Krakow – 3 June 1941 in Auschwitz concentration camp) was a Polish footballer (striker) and a member of the Poland national football team for the 1938 FIFA World Cup. However, he didn't actually travel to Strasbourg for the tournament. His club at that time was Wisła Kraków. He was capped twice for Poland, with both games against Latvia.[1] Arrested by the Gestapo on the streets of Krakow, Łyko was taken to Auschwitz, where he was shot in June 1941.
