Komtsukunft (Poland in the early 1920s. It was the youth wing of the Jewish Communist Labour Bund in Poland.[1] Komtsukunft was a splinter-group of the Bundist Tsukunft movement.[2] The split occurred in late 1921, as Tskunft had withdrawn its application for membership of the Communist Youth International.[3] Komtsukunft was founded on February 2, 1922, and had about 3,000 members.[1] Komtsukunft affiliated itself with the Communist Youth International, becoming recognized as a section of the international youth movement.[1][3] In March-April 1923 Komtsukunft merged into the Young Communist League of Poland.[1][3]

The Warsaw Committee of Komtsukunft was made up by Kh. Kaplan, Mendl Skrobek, Itsik Kovner, Benyomin ("Yanek") Goldflam, Gitele Rapoport, Aleksander Zatorski, Hershl Goldfinger, Yankele Bibleyzer, Adek Likhtenboym, Efrayim Pinkert and Haline Fefer.[4]
