details of death

During Polish–Russian war of 1919‑21, after Russian invasion of Vilnius in 1920, twice managed to escape Russian soldiers apparently bent on his execution (e.g. after attack and robbery of his rectory) — thanks to help of his unknown to him parishioners. Moved west to Białystok — then also under Russian control — where went into hiding as a civilian. After Russian defeat at Warsaw battle of 08.1920 marched back east to his Świsłocz parish (Białystok Poles recaptured — in a battle called appropriately Białystok battle — on 22.08.1920). On the way — in between Waliły and Brzostowica Wielka railway stations — apprehended by a Russian unit. Attacked and wounded in hand and chest. Prob. left behind. Fate thereafter unclear — prob. killed off by another group of marauding Russian soldiers and left dead in a nearby forest. The dumped body was discovered after more than two months and funeral celebrations took place on 28.11.1920 in Świsłocz.

Polish-Russian war of 1919—20: War for independence of Poland and its borders. Poland regained independence in 1918 but had to fight for its borders with former imperial powers, in particular Russia. Russia planned to incite Bolshevik–like revolutions in the Western Europe and thus invaded Poland. Russian invaders were defeated in 08.1920 in a battle called Warsaw battle („Vistula river miracle”, one of the 10 most important battles in history, according to some historians). Thanks to this victory Poland recaptured part of the lands lost during partitions of Poland in XVIII century, and Europe was saved from the genocidal Communism.
