details of death

After German and Russian invasion of Poland in 09.1939 and start of the II World War escaping from advancing Germans left with other seminarians Cracow and went east. There found himself under Russian occupation. Managed to get back, through the border set up by the occupiers, to the territory under German occupation, to General Governorate. After end of the official hostilities of the II World War and start of another Russian occupation survived two attempts at his life made by Commie–Nazi militiamen in Krynica. Left his Congregation house and joined partisans as a chaplain of the clandestine Polish Underground Independence Army PPAN — Polish independence resistance fighters (till 1945 part of Polish Clandestine State, later so‑called „forgotten/unbending soldiers”), nom‑de‑guerre „Father”, „Sem”. On 02.07.1948 arrested by the Russian controlled security Commie‑Nazi force UB (had a chance to continue hiding but voluntarily stayed in place already known to the UB, not wanting to leave comrades from PPAN arrested after a botched attack on a bank). During a show trial sentenced on 13.08.1949 to death. Did not admit any guilt during the process. Stated to his torturers: „I will gladly give my life. For what is death? I believe that each innocent drop of blood spilled will breed thousands of your opponents and will turn against you”. And added: „Judica me Deus et discerne causam meam” (pl. „Judge me, o Lord, and resolve my case”). Murdered in Montelupich prison in Cracow together with two of his co–partisans by a shot to the back of the head.

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])

General Governorate: A separate administrative territorial region set up by the Germans in 1939 after defeat of Poland, which included German‑occupied part of Polish territory that was not directly incorporate into German state. It was run by the Germans till 1945 and final Russian offensive, and was a part of so–called Big Germany — Grossdeutschland. From 1941 expanded to include district Galicia. (more on: en.wikipedia.org [access: 2013.12.04])

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])
