Igielskie Fields: In „Death Valley” n. Chojnice, as part of extermination of the Polish intelligentsia in Pomerania called „Intelligenzaktion” — in 1939, from 20.10.1939 till 12.1939 Germans murdered approx. 500 inhabitants of Chojnice and surrounding villages — mainly representatives of local intelligentsia and patients of the Chojnice psychiatric institute, branch of Kocborowo institute, during „AktionT4” — Germ. „Vernichtung von lebensunwertem Leben” (Eng. „elimination of live not worth living”) extermination program. The victims — among them c. 9 Catholic priests — had to line up over the shooting ditches, take of their coats and jackets. Shots were fired at the back of their heads and bodies fell down themselves onto the ditches. In 01.1945 Germans murdered there additional 1,000–1,300 victims. (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2012.11.23])

Chojnice: In a correctional facillity for minors Germans set up in 1939 and 1940 a prison for Poles from Chojnice county. Most of the prisoners, including c. 215 mentally ill children, were exterminated — as a part of „Intelligenzaktion” aimed at extermination of Polish intelligentsia and ruling classes in Pomerania — in a nearby execution site in Pola Igelskie. In 1941‑3 transit camp for Poles destine for slave labour in Germany. (more on: www.sdnchojnice.pl [access: 2013.12.04])

Intelligenzaktion: (Eng. „Action Intelligentsia”) — 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 the first phase right after start of German occupation of Poland implemented as Germ. Unternehmen „Tannenberg” (Eng. „Tannenberg operation”) — plan based on proscription lists of Poles worked out by (Germ. Sonderfahndungsbuch Polen), regarded by Germans as specially dangerous to the German Reich. List contained names of c. 61,000 Poles. Altogether 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.sdnchojnice.pl [access: 2013.12.04], 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])
