Šaltupis: In 01.1942, at the Šaltupis estate in Lithuania, the Germans established a slave labor camp for the Polish clergy. The formal order was issued by a Lithuanian collaborator, the police chief of the city of Vilnius. The camp was managed by the German Secret Political Police Gestapo, but the commandant was another Lithuanian collaborator, known for his brutality and sadism towards prisoners. On 17.10.1942, professors of the Theological Faculty of the University of Stefan Batory and the Theological Seminary in Vilnius were brought in. Apart from them, Vilnius monks and friars were kept in the camp: the Discalced Carmelites, Jesuits, Missionaries, Brothers Hospitallers of Saint John of God and one Franciscan. Together c. 50 people. The internees slaved on a farm. In 04.1943 some of the prisoners were released. Most of them however were held until the defeat of Germany and the start of the Russian occupation in 07.1944. A few perished in the camp.

Vilnius (Lukishki): Vilnius prison used both by Russians and Germans. Thousands of Poles were kept there. From 2,000 to 16,000 prisoners were jailed at any time there. In 06.1941, after German invasion, Russians murdered most of the prisoners. (more on: en.wikipedia.orgClick to attempt to display webpage

03.03.1942 arrests (Vilnius): On 03.03.1942 in Vilnius Germans arrested 28 professors and 81 seminarians of Vilnius Theological Seminary, prob. denounced by the Lithuanians. A few weeks later, on 26.03.1942, the Germans and the Lithuanians who collaborated with them arrested 9 religious fathers, 5 brothers, 2 novices and 1 boy helping in the kitchen, from the Jesuit College of Vilnius. All were locked in Łukiszki prison in Vilnius. Professors were on 18.03.1942 transported to Wyłkowyszki and interned there. In 10.1942 were subsequently sent to concentration camp (i.e. Szałtupie, Poniewieżyk). The seminarians were transported out on 04.05.1942 to Germany for slave labour (most of them escaped during the transport). Theological seminary was closed. Few weeks after Vilnius seminary arrests, on 26.03.1942 Germans arrested Vilnius religious friars and clerics (Jesuits and Missionary Fathers of St Vincent a Pauli, among others) who got exposed to the same prison treatment.

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. In a political sense, the pact was an attempt to restore the status quo ante before 1914, with one exception, namely the „commercial” exchange of the so–called „Kingdom of Poland”, which in 1914 was part of the Russian Empire, fore Eastern Galicia (today's western Ukraine), in 1914 belonging to the Austro–Hungarian Empire. Galicia, including Lviv, was to be taken over by the Russians, the „Kingdom of Poland” — under the name of the General Governorate — Germany. The resultant „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.orgClick to attempt to display webpage
