murder sites
camps (+ prisoner no)

Stanyslaviv: Prison used by the Russians (in 1939‑41 — in 06.1941, when escaping from advancing Germans, Russians perpetrated a mass murder on prison inmates — and from 1944); the Germans (in 1941‑4); and again by the Russian occupiers after replacing Germans in 1944. Thousands of Poles were jailed there. (more on: stanislawow.net [access: 2014.01.06], stanislawow.net [access: 2014.01.06])

KrasLag: Russian system of distributed concentration and forced labour camps (part of Gulag penal system) — up to 800‑1,000 prisoners each — centered Kansk and later in Reshot n. Krasnoyarsk, founded in 1938. The prisoners slaved mainly at forest clearances. The mortality rate among prisoners, the majority of which were political, reached in 1938‑9 and 1941‑5 an annual average of 7‑8% (some were executed). Among prisoners were many Lithuanians (from 1941) and Volga river Germans (from 01.1942). In the 2nd half of 1940s many political prisoners from Ukraine and Belarus were brought in. In 1949‑50 most of the prisoners were relocated to other concentration camps, to SibLag in Kazachstan among others, but KrasLag remained operational at least till 1956. Altogether till 1950 at least 100,000 inmates went through KrasLag. (more on: www.memorial.krsk.ru [access: 2020.04.04])

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])

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 — backed up by the betrayal of the formal allies of Poland, France and Germany, which on 12.09.1939, at a joint conference in Abbeville, decided not to provide aid to attacked Poland and not to take military action against Germany (a clear breach of treaty obligations with Poland) — 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])
