Sztum: Heavy prison for criminal offenders. (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2014.11.28])

Cracow (Montelupich): Cracow penal prison run by the Germans. In 1940‑4 Germans jailed there approx. 50,000 prisoners, mainly Poles and Jews. Some of them were transported to KL Auschwitz concentration camp, some were executed. After cease in war effort the prison was used by UB — a Polish unit of Russian NKVD — as a prison for Polish independence resistance fighters, some of which were subsequently sent to prisons and slave labour camps in Russia. (more on: en.wikipedia.org [access: 2014.10.31])

Jaworzno (prisoner no: 2518): During II World War Jaworzno was a subcamp of KL Auschwitz concentration camp. After cessation of hostilities was a concentration camp organised by Russian controlled Polish security ministry. Prisoners included Germans and enemies of the commi‑nazi system, among them members of the Polsih resistance army AK and individuals suspected of membership in genocidal Ukrainian nationalist organisations UPA and OUN (rounded up during „action Vistula” ). (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2014.09.21], en.wikipedia.org [access: 2014.09.21])

Operation „Vistula”: Pacification action, ordered on 29.03.1947 and organized in 1947‑50 by Polish Commie–Nazi state prl — a follow–on of a forceful deportation in 1944‑6 of a part of Ukrainian population to the east, to the territories directly occupied by Russians — aimed at part of Ukrainian OUN/UPA organization, active on the territories controlled by prl, responsible for so‑called „Volhynia genocide”. During the operation Polish units, supported by Russian army and Czechoslovakia (it locked down the border with Poland thus closing down possible escape routes), carried out a mass deportation of whole village and hamlets from south–east prl — Ukrainians and local ethnic groups of Boykos, Dolinyans and Lemkos, as well as mixed Polish–Ukrainian families — to Szczecin and Olsztyn voivodeships in northern and north–western prl. Altogether c. 140,000 civilians were deported, resulting in destroying a number of OUN/UPA units c. 1,500 fighters strong, and arrested and interned c. 2,900 alleged members of OUN/UPA (among others in Jaworzno concentration camp). (more on: en.wikipedia.org [access: 2019.12.26])

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])
