camps (+ prisoner no)

Tver: On 04.04–22.05.1940 Russians executed in Tver c. 6,314 Polish prisoners of war (POW) kept in Ostaszków concentration camp. The prisoners were brought to the NKVD building (now Tver Medical Institute at Sovetskaya Str., formerly classical gymnasium), identified, chained, and then murdered by a shot from a German Walther P38 pistol into the back of the head. The bodies where next dumped in mass graves in ditches in the Miednoje forest. This was a fulfillment of Russian Commie–Nazi government decision – Political Bureau of the Russian Commie–Nazi party of 05.03.1940 – to exterminate Polish intelligentsia and individuals held in Russian POW camps following Ribbentrop–Molotov German–Russian accord and annexation of half of Poland into Russia, confirmed by the order No.00350 of the head of the NKVD, Mr Lavrentyi Beria, on the "discharge of NKVD prisons" in Ukraine and Belarus. There are indications – i.e. 4 so–called "NKVD–Gestapo Methodical Conferences" of 1939–40: in Brześć on Bug, Przemyśl, Zakopane and Cracow – of close collaboration between Germans and Russians in realization of plans of total extermination of Polish nation, its elites in particular – decision that prob. was confirmed during meeting of socialist leaders of Germany: Mr Heinrich Himmler, and Russia: Mr Lavrentyi Beria, in another German leader's hunting lodge: Mr Hermann Göring, in Rominty in Romincka Forest in East Prussia.

Ostaszków (prisoner no: 4818): In 1939‑40 in Ostaszków — in practice on Seliger lake Stołobnyj and Swietlica islands, c. 11 km from Ostaszków, in a former Orthodox monastery, Niłowo–Stołobieńska Hermitage — Russians set a concentration camp for Poles arrested after 1939 invasion of Poland. In 04.1940 6,570 were kept there out of which approx. 6,300 were subsequently — as the fulfillment of Russian government decision to exterminate Polish intelligentsia and prisoners of war camps (Polish holocaust) — executed in Twer.

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
