The town was the capital of a district within the Kalisz region of the Russian Empire. Following the end of the First World War in 1918, Turek became part of the Second Polish Republic. With the German invasion of Poland and the outbreak of the Second World War, Turek was occupied by the Wehrmacht and annexed by Nazi Germany. It was administered as part of the county or district (kreis) of Turek within Reichsgau Wartheland. With the arrival of the Red Army in 1945 and the end of the war, Turek was integrated into the People's Republic of Poland.
