details of death

In 02.1915, after the outbreak of the I World War, exile by Russian Tsarist authorities to Krasnoyarsk in Siberia. There became local parish priest, and in 1917 moved to Ufa. In 1918 deported by gen. Korchak’s Russian „White” army to Malichevka village n. Tomsk — for publicly voting against collaboration between Polish Legions in Russia and armies of the „Whites”, during homilies and in the press. There ministered to the exiled Poles — in Malichevka itself and in Bialystok, 40 km afar. In 1920 arrested again by the Russians — this time by Bolsheviks who were conquering Siberia — and soon released. Returned to Malichevka village. There on 27/28.01.1921 arrested — denounced by a Polish communist — and on the night of 27/28.01.1921 murdered (prob. with Orthodox priest Bielyavski). „Death sentence” was post‑factum confirmed formally by Russians on 04.02.1921.

Forced exile: One of the standard Russian forms of repression. The prisoners were usually taken to a small village in the middle of nowhere — somewhere in Siberia, in far north or far east — dropped out of the train carriage or a cart, left out without means of subsistence or place to live.
