11.08.1937 Russian genocide: On 11.08.1937 Russian leader Stalin decided and NKWD head, Nicholas Jeżow, signed a „Polish operation” executive order no 00485. 139,835 Poles living in Russia were thus sentenced summarily to death. 111,091 were murdered. 28,744 were sentenced to deportation to concentration camps in Gulag. Altogether however more than 100,000 Poles were deported, mainly to Kazakhstan, Siberia, Kharkov and Dniepropetrovsk. (more on: en.wikipedia.org [access: 2016.03.14])

Great Purge 1937: In the summer of 1937 Polish Catholic priests held in Solovetsky Islands, Anzer Island and BelBaltLag were locked in prison cells (some in Sankt Petersburg). Next in a few kangaroo, murderous Russian trials (on 09.10.1937, 25.11.1937, among others) run by so‑called „Troika NKVD” all were sentenced to death. They were subsequently executed by a single shot to the back of the head. The murders took place either in Sankt Petersburg prison or directly in places of mass murder, e.g. Sandarmokh or Levashov Wilderness, where their bodies were dumped into the ditches. Other priests were arrested in the places they still ministered in and next murdered in local NKVD headquarters (e.g. in Minsk in Belarus), after equally genocidal trials run by aforementioned „Troika NKVD” kangaroo courts.

SevVostLag: Set of Russian concentration camps (sub‑camps) of forced slaved labour (for most of the time part of part of „Dalstroy” mining company controlled by genocidal NKVD organization, also part of Gulag penal system), in Kołyma region, where in gold and other minerals' mines up to 200,000 prisoners where held at the peak. The prisoners were transported on ships to Magadan port in Magadan oblast on the Sea of Okhotsk, an entry point to the SevVostLag, prior to be sent to target sub‑camps. Up to 6 mln of the perished in Kołyma in 1931/2‑53. (more on: en.wikipedia.org [access: 2014.05.09], www.gulagmuseum.org [access: 2019.05.30])

Gulag: Network of Russian slave labour concentration camps. At any given time up to 12 mln inmates where held in them, milions perished. (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2014.05.09], en.wikipedia.org [access: 2014.05.09])

Trial of 14.05.1936: Trial of 19 Catholics, including four women and eight Catholic priests: Fr Stanislaus Brawer, Fr. Stanislaus Jachniewicz, Fr Roman Jankowski, Fr Sigismunt Klemczyński, Fr Joseph Koziński, Fr Alois Schönfeld, Fr Peter Welik and Greek–Catholic Fr Nicholas Szczepaniuk, the last Catholic pastors ministering in Zhytomyr vicinity, held in Kiev. They were accused of „counter–revolutionary activities”, „remaining in touch with counter–revolutionary representative of foreign centers”, „usage of Polish national banners during religious festivities” and „membership of fascist counter–revolutionary roman–catholic and greek–catholic priests’ organization in the Western Ukraine”. The genocidal Russian summary court, so–called „Troika NKVD”, sent most for many years to Russian concentration camps Gulag. (more on: history.org.ua [access: 2019.02.02])

Kiev (Lyukyanivska): Russian political prison in Kiev run by criminal NKVD. (more on: en.wikipedia.org [access: 2014.09.21])

Zhytomyr (prison): Russian investigative prison known for cruel interrogation methods used by the Russians. Execution site as well.
