details of death

During Prussian rule over part of Poland (Prussian partition) harassed by German authorities for Polish activism.

On 01.01.1907, signed, as one of the 16 priests, the pre–election appeal announcing the appointment of Polish priests as candidates for the Polish Circle in the German parliament.

After the rebirth of the Polish state in 11.1918, elected one of the 431 delegates to the Polish District Parliament, which was held on 03‑05.12.1918 in Poznań, and which expressed will to create a united Polish state with access to the sea, encompassing the Polish lands of the former Prussian partition.

As a result, was briefly arrested in 01.1919 by the Germans.

Remanded in custody in Gliwice.

Released, but for some time was still hiding in a convent in Wrocław.

In 1919‑21, during the preparations for the plebiscite that was to decide on the nationality of Upper Silesia and the Opole region, participated in many rallies and meetings in Gliwice and nearby towns.

Persecuted by German militias — in 1920 survived an attempted assassination attempt.

After German invasion of Poland on 01.09.1939 (Russians invaded Poland 17 days later) and start of the World War II in 09.1939, after start of German occupation, arrested by the Germans after village capture on the first day of war.

Beaten up on the churchyard.

Taken to Nieborowice transit camp.

During the night of 05‑06.09.1939 German guards got drunk.

They apprehended one of the arrested and started to drag him through all the barracks — any prisoner who agreed to spit on the victim was to be released.

Next all were gathered on the camp's roll–call yard.

The same prisoner, already gravely beaten up was attached to a card and dragged in front of all other prisoners.

Fr Robota apparently protested — and was followed by 16 other prisoners.

All were bunched together and murdered on the spot.

The victims of this „bloody night” were next buried in a local ditch.

The exhumation on 29.09.1946 proved that before death was tortured — the skull was split into seven parts, his ribs and spine were broken.

One of the German witnesses stated: „they jumped on him”.

alt. details of death

According to other sources arrested by the Germans with 14 other Poles on 08.09.1939, taken to an execution site (on the way, was to be beaten and had a jaw knocked out with the rifle butt) and murdered in the forest by the Pilchowice / Nieborowice villages.

Nieborowice: In 1939 Germans set up in Nieborowice transit camp for Polish soldiers, activists and former Silesian Uprising participants, recorded on their proscription lists. 2,000 of them died there of subsequently during II World War — some murdered in the camp itself, for instance c. 18 Poles during so‑called „bloody night” of 05‑06.09.1939.

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

Silesian Uprisings: Three armed interventions of the Polish population against Germany in 1919‑21 aiming at incorporation of Upper Silesia and Opole region into Poland, after the revival of the Polish state in 1918. Took place in the context of a plebiscite ordered on the basis of the international treaty of Versailles of 28.06.1919, ending the First World War, that was to decide national fate of the disputed lands. The 1st Uprising took place on 16‑24.08.1919 and broke out spontaneously in response to German terror and repression against the Polish population. Covered mainly Pszczyna and Rybnik counties and part of the main Upper Silesia industrial district. Suppressed by the Germans. 2nd Uprising took place on 19‑25.08.1920 in response to numerous acts of terror of the German side. Covered the entire area of the Upper Silesia industrial district and part of the Rybnik county. As a result Poles obtained better conditions for the campaign prior the plebiscite. The poll was conducted on 20.03.1921. The majority of the population — 59.6% — were in favor of Germany, but the results were influenced by the admission of voting from former inhabitants of Upper Silesia living outside Silesia. As a result the 3rd Uprising broke out, the largest such uprising of the Silesian in the 20th century. It lasted from 02.05.1921 to 05.07.1921. Spread over almost the entire area of Upper Silesia. Two large battles took place in the area of St. Anna Mountain and near Olza. As a result on 12.10.1921 the international plebiscite commission decided on a more favorable for Poland division of Upper Silesia. The territory granted to Poland was enlarged to about ⅓ of the disputed territory. Poland accounted for 50% of metallurgy and 76% of coal mines.
