details of death

After the outbreak of the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia in 1917, went into hiding — as a chaplain of the tsarist Russian army — in Saint Petersburg, avoiding — according to his own words — execution by the Bolshevik authorities in Jamburg, where he served as a parish priest.

Again threatened with execution in 05–11.1919, during the offensive of the post–imperial troops (so–called Whites) of the North–Western Army of General Yudenich on Sankt Petersburg.

In 1920 left Sankt Petersburg region and went to Kiev with the intention of returning to Poland.

But the Polish troops were no longer there — their retreat from Ukraine during the Polish–Russian war of 1919‑21 had already begun, and started his ministry in local Ukrainian parishes instead.

In 1922 arrested by the Russians.

Sentenced to a year in prison — ostensibly for helping Poles and prob. for falsification of the certificate of Polish nationality.

Released after four months.

On 21.12.1922, avoided arrest and went into hiding again.

Left Ukraine and ministered, inter alia, in Samara and Tver.

Finally, on 22.02.1925, left for Poland, thanks to the Polish Mission (embassy) in Moscow — possibly exchanged for Russian spies.

After German and Russian invasion of Poland in 09.1939 and start of the II World War, after start of German occupation, arrested on 24.10.1939 by the Germans, together with a number of priests from parishes near Piotrków Kujawski.

Jailed and tortured in Piotrków Kujawski goal.

There murdered with 7 other priests, in a mass execution of 22 Poles.

Piotrków Kujawski: 01.11.1939 — mass execution of 8 priests and 14 civilians in the Tabaczyński property's park, in Piotrków Kujawski. After the end of hostilities 13 bodies were recognised during exhumation process.

Intelligenzaktion: (Eng. „Action Intelligentsia”) — extermination program of Polish elites, mainly intelligentsia, executed by the Germans right from the start of the occupation in 09.1939 till around 05.1940, mainly on the lands directly incorporated into Germany but also in the so‑called General Governorate where it was called AB‑aktion. During the first phase right after start of German occupation of Poland implemented as Germ. Unternehmen „Tannenberg” (Eng. „Tannenberg operation”) — plan based on proscription lists of Poles worked out by (Germ. Sonderfahndungsbuch Polen), regarded by Germans as specially dangerous to the German Reich. List contained names of c. 61,000 Poles. Altogether during this genocide Germans methodically murdered c. 50,000 teachers, priests, landowners, social and political activists and retired military. Further 50,000 were sent to concentration camps where most of them perished. (more on: en.wikipedia.orgClick to attempt to display webpage

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

Polish-Russian war of 1919—21: 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.
