During I World War interned by Germans in 1915 in Celle n. Hannover „for advocating Polish patriotism”. Released in 1916. In 03.1918 evicted by Germans from his parish with a settlement ban in five nearby counties for „promoting Polishness among school youth and faithful parishioners”. As a volunteer joined the budding Polish army and became a member of Polish Military Organisation POW (a clandestine Polish organization in Russia active during I World War in 1914‑8). Participated in Polish–Russian war of 1920. After German and Russian invasion of Poland in 09.1939 and start of the II World War left his house and voluntarily joined an officer–less group of soldiers and took command. Arrested by the Russians in Zamość at the end of 09.1939. Jailed in Putywl camp and next in Kozielsk concentration camp (according to some sources Starobielsk).

Twer: On 04.03—22.05.1940 Russians executed in Twer approx. 6,300 Polish prisoners of war (POW) kept in Ostaszków concentration camp. The bodies where next dumped in mass graves in ditches in the Miednoje forest. This was a fulfillment of Russian Commie–Nazi government decision — Political Bureau of the Russian Commie–Nazi party of 05.03.1940 — to exterminate Polish intelligentsia and individuals jailed in prisoners of war camps (Polish holocaust). (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2012.11.23], en.wikipedia.org [access: 2014.05.09])

Ostaszków: In 1939‑40 in Ostaszków — in practice on Seliger lake Stołobnyj and Swietlica islands, c. 11 km from Ostaszków, in a former Orthodox monastery, Niłowo–Stołobieńska Hermitage — Russians set a concentration camp for Poles arrested after 1939 invasion of Poland. In 04.1940 6,570 were kept there out of which approx. 6,300 were subsequently — as the fulfillment of Russian government decision to exterminate Polish intelligentsia and prisoners of war camps (Polish holocaust) — executed in Twer. (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2012.11.23])

Moscow (Butyrki): Harsh transit and interrogation prison in Moscow — for political prisoners — where Russians held and murdered thousands of Poles. (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2014.05.09])

Starobielsk: In 1939‑41 in Starobielsk Russians set a concentration camp for Poles arrested after 1939 invasion of Poland. In 04.1940 approx. 3,800 were kept there and subsequently— as the fulfillment of Russian government decision to exterminate Polish intelligentsia and prisoners of war camps (Polish holocaust) — were executed in Twer. Used as a concentration camp for Poles later as well. (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2012.11.23])

Kozielsk: In 1939‑40 in Kozielsk Russians set a concentration camp for Poles arrested after 1939 invasion of Poland. In 04.1940 approx. 4,300 were kept there and subsequently— as the fulfillment of Russian government decision to exterminate Polish intelligentsia and prisoners of war camps (Polish holocaust) — were executed in Katyń. (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2012.11.23])

Putivl: Russian concentration camp set up in 09.1939 for Poles arrested after Russian invasion of Poland and start of the II World War. There are indications that in the camp (now in Ukraine) and its branch in Tiotkine (now in Russia) mass murders of Poles (c. 5,000 victims) took place. From 06.1940 and Russian invasion of Baltic states c. 6,000 officers and policemen from Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania were held there. Their fate also remains unknown. (more on: www.kresy.pl [access: 2017.01.21])

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])

Polish-Russian war of 1919—20: War for independence of Poland and its borders. Poland regained independence in 1918 but had to fight for its borders with former imperial powers, in particular Russia. Russia planned to incite Bolshevik–like revolutions in the Western Europe and thus invaded Poland. Russian invaders were defeated in 08.1920 in a battle called Warsaw battle („Vistula river miracle”, one of the 10 most important battles in history, according to some historians). Thanks to this victory Poland recaptured part of the lands lost during partitions of Poland in XVIII century, and Europe was saved from the genocidal Communism.
