Warsaw (Mokotów): Prison and detention centre in Warsaw on Rakowiecka str. Used by Germans during German occupation 1939‑45 to held thousands of Poles. In 1945‑56 thousands of Polish independence activists were held there by the Polish Commie–Nazi branch of Russian NKVD/KGB police. Hundreds of Poles were executed. (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2013.08.17])

Rawicz: German penal institution and investigative prison. After cessation of war campaigns a prison run by commi–nazi Russian occupiers. (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2013.08.17])

Trail of 21-26.01.1953: A show trial of 4 priests from Cracow Metropolitan Curia (one, Fr Joseph Fudali, was excluded due to a state of health after tortures in prison) and 3 civilians accused of made–up charges of treason and collaboration with Vatican. Commi–nazi court three of the accused, including Fr Joseph Lelito, sentenced to death, a the remaining four to long–terms imprisonment. Shameful and murderous role was played out by Polish intellectuals (among them Wisława Szymborska, future Nobel laureate, Sławomir Mrożek, and many others) who published a public letter denouncing Cracow priests. Fr Fudali perished in prison, Fr Wit Brzuski, tortured, soon after release. (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2014.11.28])

Cracow (Montelupich): Cracow penal prison run by the Germans. In 1940‑4 Germans jailed there approx. 50,000 prisoners, mainly Poles and Jews. Some of them were transported to KL Auschwitz concentration camp, some were executed. After cease in war effort the prison was used by UB — a Polish unit of Russian NKVD — as a prison for Polish independence resistance fighters, some of which were subsequently sent to prisons and slave labour camps in Russia. (more on: en.wikipedia.org [access: 2014.10.31])

Ribbentrop-Molotov: Genocidal Russian–German alliance pact between Russian leader Joseph Stalin and German leader Adolf Hitler signed on 23.08.1939 in Moscow by respective foreign ministers, Mr. Vyacheslav Molotov for Russia and Joachim von Ribbentrop for Germany. The pact sanctioned and was the direct cause of joint Russian and German invasion of Poland and the outbreak of the II World War in 09.1939. „The war was one of the greatest calamities and dramas of humanity in history, for two atheistic and anti–Christian ideologies — national and international socialism — rejected God and His fifth Decalogue commandment: Thou shall not kill!” (Abp Stanislaus Gądecki, 01.09.2019). The decisions taken were on 28.09.1939 slightly altered and made more precise when a treaty on „German–Russian boundaries and friendship” was agreed by the same murderous signatories. One of its findings was establishment of spheres of influence in Central and Eastern Europe and in consequence IV partition of Poland. In one of its secret annexes agreed, that: „the Signatories will not tolerate on its respective territories any Polish propaganda that affects the territory of the other Side. On their respective territories they will suppress all such propaganda and inform each other of the measures taken to accomplish it”. The agreements resulted in a series of meeting between two genocidal organization representing both sides — German Gestapo and Russian NKVD when coordination of efforts to exterminate Polish intelligentsia and Polish leading classes (in Germany called Intelligenzaktion, in Russia took the form of Katyń massacres) where discussed. Resulted in deaths of hundreds of thousands of Polish intelligentsia, including thousands of priests presented here, and tens of millions of ordinary people,. The results of this Russian–German pact lasted till 1989 and are still in evidence even today. (more on: en.wikipedia.org [access: 2015.09.30])
