Inowrocław: German penal institution and investigative prison. In 1939 hundreds of Poles from Inowrocław and vicinity were jailed there — as part of „Intelligenzaktion”, German program of physical extermination of Polish intelligentsia and leading classes. By 11.1939 in the prison and its immediate surroundings approx. 546 Poles had been executed, among them 56 victims shot on the night of 22‑23.10.1939. Also later the prison was a place of Polish martyrology. After commencement of Russian occupation in 1945 Commi‑Nazi prison for women, among others. (more on: www.inowroclawfakty.pl [access: 2013.05.19])

Wola Łącka: On 01.12.1939, at night, Germans — as a part of „Intelligenzaktion” aimed at extermination of Polish intelligentsia and ruling classes — brought to Wola Łącka 29 Poles from Gostynin and its vicinity. Tied their hand with barbed wire and murdered them in a nearby forest. The dying were finished off with gun butts, had their heads smashed. The bodies were buried in a mass grave. (more on: www.dobroni.pl [access: 2012.11.23])

Intelligenzaktion: (Eng. „Action Intelligentsia”) — also Germ. Unternehmen „Tannenberg” (Eng. „Tannenberg operation”). Extermination program of Polish elites, mainly intelligentsia, executed by the Germans right from the start of the occupation in 09.1939 till around 05.1940, mainly on the lands directly incorporated into Germany but also in the so‑called General Governorate where it was called AB‑aktion. During this genocide Germans methodically murdered c. 50,000 teachers, priests, landowners, social and political activists and retired military. Further 50,000 were sent to concentration camps where most of them perished. (more on: www.dobroni.pl [access: 2012.11.23], en.wikipedia.org [access: 2014.10.04])

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])
