Małe Czyste: From 09.1939 to 11.1939, Germans — representatives of the paramilitary organization Volksdeutscher Selbstschutz — in the former sand mine (Piaskownia) between the villages of Małe Czyste and Dorposz Szlachecki, in a series of mass executions, murdered c. 400–800 inhabitants of the Chełmno county, mainly representatives of local Polish political and economic and intellectual elites — Catholic priests, teachers, officials, members of the Union of Veterans of National Uprisings of the Republic of Poland, the Society of Insurgents and Soldiers and Military Trainees. The victims were brought to the place of execution usually at night. They were forced to dig pits (there were probably 6 graves in total, on an area of about 100 m2), and then shot over them in the light of car headlights. In 08.1944 the Germans dug up the bodies of the murdered and burned them. (more on: www.odznaka.kuj-pom.bydgoszcz.pttk.plClick to attempt to display webpage

Klamry: In Klamry from 12.10 till 11.11.1939 Germans murdered approx. 2,000‑2,500 inhabitants of the Culm (Chełmno) region, mainly Polish intelligentsia, in mass executions. (more on: pl.wikipedia.orgClick to attempt to display webpage

Chełmno: Detention centre run by Germans. Death sentences were probably carried out there. In particular in 1939–40 the prison was used to jail, as a part of „Intelligenzaktion” – extermination of Polish intelligentsia in Pomerania – Polish intelligentsia from Chełmno county prior to sending them to mass execution sites and concentration camps.

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
