Bysław [ˈbɨswaf] (German: Groß Bislaw) is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Lubiewo, within Tuchola County, Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship, in north-central Poland. It lies approximately 5 kilometres (3 mi) north of Lubiewo, 15 km (9 mi) south-east of Tuchola, and 44 km (27 mi) north of Bydgoszcz. It is located within the Tuchola Forest in the historic region of Pomerania.
In 2002 the village had a population of 1,513.
During the German occupation of Poland (World War II), the Germans murdered several Polish farmers and the local priest during large massacres of Poles in Rudzki Most. In 1941, the Germans expelled 105 Poles, who were initially deported to the Potulice concentration camp, where two children died, and afterwards some were deported to forced labour to Germany. Their farms were handed over to German colonists as part of the Lebensraum policy. Further expulsions were carried out in 1942–1943.
