Martyrology of the clergy — Poland
XX century (1914–1989)
One of the core assumptions the authors of the „White Book” decided to base their work on was fundamental usage of sources available over the Internet, both for research and analytical purposes. And such is the case today. In order to complete the lexicon in a form users are able to access now many years long effort of perusing, scanning and analyzing tens of thousands of net pages, mainly in Polish, but also in German, Russian, English, Ukrainian, Belarusians, Lithuanian, Latvian, Czech, etc., was required and undertaken. As a result each of the particular biographies contains references to scores of sources — hyperlinks to other pages — each with its own access availability date.
The Internet resources however — and references to c. 9,750 different links are used in the Book — are „fleeting” in nature, undergo frequent modifications, appear and then disappear, so the authors of the „White Book” cannot be held responsible for their changes/availability over time.
The other pool of sources the „White Book” owes its range and accuracy to are publically available lexicons published over the last dozens of years, mainly in Poland. Among them the most important ones are:
Finally authors are indebted to dozens, hundreds of correspondents who contributed countless data, memoirs, recollections, including photos, without which the „White Book” would not have become what it really is — one the of the largest lexicons not only over the net but in general, a testimony to the martyrdom of thousands of priests, monks and nuns who, by their sacrifice, laid foundations for the world we are living in today and forging our individual paths towards God and eternity.
