details of death

After German and Russian invasion of Poland in 09.1939 and start of the World War II arrested by the Austrians/Germans for the first time on 04.03.1940 — for open criticism of German regime and protest against robbery of a monastery in Innsbruck by national–socialist rulers of Austria. Released on 14.03.1940. Arrested again on 25.08.1940 — after making the Innsbruck monastery’s robbery public through Vatican radio and after publishing obituary of Fr Otto Neururer, murdered by the Germans, in a parish newsletter — and transported to KL Dachau concentration camp. On 01.09.1940 taken to KL Sachsenhausen concentration camp where was forced to slave work. On 14‑15.12.1940 transported back to KL Dachau. Released on 01.08.1941 as a result of Catholic Church intervention, but forbidden to return to his Innsbruck–Feldkirch Apostolic Administration. On 16.08.1941 moved to Szczecin invited by Berlin diocese bishop. Finally on 04‑05.02.1943 in Szczecin arrested by the Germans for the last time, during „Fall Stettin” — action aimed at Catholic clergy — together with Fr Albert Hirsch, Fr Frederick Lorenz, Fr Herbert Simoleit and Fr Alphonse Maria Wachsmann (arrested later), among others. Held in German political police Gestapo prison in Szczecin. Interrogated numerous times and tortured. Did not break. Next brought to a prison in Berlin and from there, on 06.12.1943, transferred to Roter Ochse prison in Halle (Salle) where on 30.12.1943 tried by the highest military court Reichskriegsgericht, together with Fr Frederick Lorenz and Fr Herbert Simoleit, accused of treason and sedition. Found guilty but the lack of unanimity between the judges — only some voted for death penalty — the sentence was not signed. On 14.01.1944 sent to German army Wehrmacht prison in Torgau. For 7 months held in solitary confinement. On 27.07.1944 tried in Halle again, with the aforementioned priests, and again found guilty. Before however signing the death sentence during the following night presiding judge, Werner Lueben, committed suicide leaving a note stating that „These are neither 'criminals' nor 'asocial elements'. Their only tragedy is that they are Catholic priests!” Finally on 08.09.1944 in Torgau sentenced to death — for the third time. On 10.11.1944 brought to Roter Ochse prison in Halle and beheaded, together with two aforementioned priests.

Fall Stettin: German action against Catholic church in Szczecin and Pomerania region. Using provocation — among others German political police Gestapo disseminated rumours that Catholic priest allegedly installed broadcasting radio‑station on top the St John the Baptist church steeple and were secretly transmitting information to London — on 04‑05.02.1943 Germans arrested 40 people, including 11 Catholic priests, friars and nuns, accusing them of spying for allies. Some of the arrested were subsequently murdered (including five Catholic priests – four of whom were tried, sentenced to death and beheaded in the prison), the rest were sent to concentration camps. (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2013.05.19])

KL Dachau (prisoner no: 22706): KL Dachau in German Bavaria, set up in 1933, became the main concentration camp for Catholic priests and religious during II World War: Germans imprisoned there approx. 3,000 priests, including 1,800 Poles. They were forced to slave at so‑called „Plantags”, doing manual field works, at constructions, including crematorium. In the barracks ruled hunger, freezing cold in the winter and suffocating heat during the summer. Prisoners suffered from bouts of illnesses, including tuberculosis. Many were victims of murderous „medical experiments” — in 11.1942 c. 20 were given phlegmon injections; in 07.1942 to 05.1944 c. 120 were used by for malaria experiments. More than 750 Polish clerics where murdered by the Germans, some brought to Schloss Hartheim euthanasia centre and murdered in gas chambers. At its peak KL Dachau concentration camps’ system had nearly 100 slave labour sub–camps located throughout southern Germany and Austria. There were c. 32,000 documented deaths at the camp, and thousands perished without a trace. C. 10,000 of the 30,000 inmates were found sick at the time of liberation, on 29.04.1945, by the USA troops… (more on: www.kz-gedenkstaette-dachau.de [access: 2013.08.10], en.wikipedia.org [access: 2016.05.30])

KL Sachsenhausen: In KL Sachsenhausen concentration camp, set up in the former Olympic village in 07.1936, hundreds of Polish priests were held in 1940, before being transported to KL Dachau. Some of them perished in KL Sachsenhausen. Murderous medical experiments on prisoners were carried out in the camp. In 1942‑4 c. 140 prisoners slaved at manufacturing false British pounds, passports, visas, stamps and other documents. Other prisoners also had to do slave work, for Heinkel aircraft manufacturer, AEG and Siemens among others. On average c. 50,000 prisoners were held at any time. Altogether more than 200,000 inmates were in jailed in KL Sachsenhausen and its branched, out of which tens of thousands perished. Prior to Russian arrival mass evacuation was ordered by the Germans and c. 80,000 prisoners were marched west in so‑called „death marches” to other camps, i.e. KL Mauthausen–Gusen and KL Bergen–Belsen. The camp got liberated on 22.04.1945. After end of armed hostilities Germans set up there secret camp for German prisoners and „suspicious” Russian soldiers. (more on: en.wikipedia.org [access: 2018.11.18])

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 — backed up by the betrayal of the formal allies of Poland, France and Germany, which on 12.09.1939, at a joint conference in Abbeville, decided not to provide aid to attacked Poland and not to take military action against Germany (a clear breach of treaty obligations with Poland) — 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])
