details of death

After cessation of military conflict of II World War started by German and Russian invasion of Poland in 09.1939, after start of Russian occupation in 1944 arrested by the Russians on 08.02.1948. Accused of „contacts with members of terrorist bands—groups, hearing confessions of their members, forging their 'sins', terrorist acts against Communist activists, letting his church to be used as shelter for those hiding from Communist authorities”. For a year held and repeatedly interrogated in Grodno prison. 29.03.1949 sentenced — for „links to clandestine Polish anti–Russian Home Army AK organisation and storing anti–Russian and counterrevolutionary literature, and that while in pre–war lordly Poland led anti–Russian youth organisation 'Catholic Action'” — by Russian MKG (successor of genocidal NKVD) „troika” (Russian summary court consisting of three henchmen) for 10 years of slave labour at Russian concentration camps Gulag. The MGB prosecutor however thought the sentence lenient and on 15.04.1949 the trial was reconvened and the new sentence of 25 years in slave labour Gulag camps passed. Released from camps in 1954. Returned to his Strubnica parish gravely ill and weak.

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 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])
