camps (+ prisoner no)

Paterek: As part of their „Intelligenzaktion” — extermination of Polish intelligentsia and leading classes in Pomerania — Germans organized In Paterek n. Nakła a series of mass executions. From 04.10.1939 till 24.11.1939 more then 218 people were murdered, mainly from Wyrzysk county and its vicinity, including 48 priests and religious (among whom were 2 nuns), interned in Górka Klasztorna transit camp. The victims were murdered in ditches, the wounded were brutally finished off with, among others, shovels, and buried. (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2012.11.23], pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2013.07.06])

Górka Klasztorna: Temporary concentration camp set up by the Germans in 10.1939 in the Missionary of the Holy Family Congregation monastery. Initially mainly priests from Wyrzysk county where held there. Almost all perished murdered in the monastery or Paterek. The camp was closed down in 11.1939. (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2013.06.23])

Łobżenica: In Łobżenica, 30 km from Nakło, from 08.09.1939 till 15.10.1939 Germans set up — as part of „Intelligenzaktion” aimed at extermination of Polish intelligentsia in Pomerania — a concentration camp for Łobżenica and its vicinity inhabitants. Up to 500 prisoners were kept there at any one time, including up to 60 priests. C. 200 people were executed. The priest were subsequently taken to Górka Klasztorna camp. Some of them were executed in Paterek (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2013.12.04])

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: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2013.12.04], en.wikipedia.org [access: 2014.10.04])

Warsaw (Black Monday): On 25.09.1939 from 7:00 till late evening more than 400 German bombers made aerial raids on Warsaw. Almost 630 tons of explosives, both incendiary and demolishing were dropped. Caused c. 200 fires. Public building were not spared, including hospitals clearly marked with Red Cross signs (in fact they were targeted in the first place). Holy Ghost hospital was among them and c. 700 people, both patients and staff were killed (including 20 Vincentian sisters). Altogether during the raids called „Black Monday” c. 10,000 people perished, 35,000 were wounded, mostly civilian. The raids were in contravention of Hague agreements and must be regarded as an act of war crime. (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2015.04.18])

Air raids 1939: During invasion of Poland commenced on 01.09.1939 Germans systematically attacked civilian targets. Many cities (Wieluń, Frampol, Warszawa, Lwów, Łomża, Puck, etc.) were bombed during air raids and totally destroyed. The hospitals and churches, visibly marked as such, were not spared. German planes also attacked columns of fleeing people on the roads, massacring them. It is estimated that c. 150,000–200,000 civilians were killed or murdered by the Germans in 09.1939. (more on: en.wikipedia.org [access: 2015.04.18])

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 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])
