In 1918 Kiedroń prepared manifesto of the Rada Narodowa Księstwa Cieszyńskego (National Council of the Duchy of Cieszyn), a local Polish self-government council working to join Cieszyn Silesia to Poland. In 1920, Cieszyn Silesia was divided between Poland and Czechoslovakia by the decision of Spa Conference, in which Kiedroń was present as a Polish delegate. His hometown and the workplace fell to Czechoslovakia and Kiedroń left the Zaolzie area, as he was an active pro-Polish activist; and stayed in Poland, where worked in Upper Silesia and Warsaw. In 1923-1925 he was the Minister of Industry and Trade in the government of Władysław Grabski. Kiedroń died on 25 January 1932 in Berlin and is buried at a Protestant cemetery in Cieszyn. (en)
