  2. JD Tamarkin wrote in 1936 in the Bulletin of the AMS (PDF; 97 kB): “Quite recently, in 1935, there was founded in Poland a new important periodical, Acta Arithmetica, devoted to number theory! Thus Poland is a unique country supporting three highly specialized periodicals devoted to pure mathematics. ”It refers to the important journals Fundamenta Mathematicae (1920) and Studia Mathematica (1929) that were founded earlier .
