During I World War 1914‐1918 soldier of the German Imperial Army.

After the German invasion of the Poland on 01.09.1939 (the Russians attacked Poland 17 days later) and start of the World War II, left the parish and went with thousands of refugees towards central Poland. However soon, on 04.09.1939, returned. It happened the day after the defeat of the Polish troops of the „Pomerania” Army — including the „Czersk” Protection Group, which was part of it — in the Battle of Pomerania and the occupation of his Czersk parish by the Germans.

Detained then by the Germans, together with his vicar, Fr Paul John Klamann, as a hostage, intended to be shot in the event of armed resistance of the local Polish society.

After a few days, the detention turned into internment at the rectory (was not allowed to leave it: Fr Klamann was however „released”).

On 26.10.1939 arrested by the Germans together with Fr Klamann.

Igielskie Fields: In „Death Valleyn. Chojnice, as part of extermination of the Polish intelligentsia in Pomerania called «Intelligenzaktion» — in 1939, from 20.10.1939 till 12.1939 members of the genocidal German paramilitary organization Volksdeutscher Selbstschutz murdered c. 500 inhabitants of Chojnice and surrounding villages — mainly representatives of local intelligentsia and patients of the Chojnice psychiatric institute, branch of Kocborowo institute, during «Aktion T4» — Germ. „Vernichtung von lebensunwertem Leben” (Eng. „elimination of live not worth living”) extermination program. The victims — among them c. 9 Catholic priests — had to line up over the shooting ditches, take of their coats and jackets. Shots were fired at the back of their heads and bodies fell down themselves onto the ditches. In 01.1945 Germans murdered there additional 1,000‐1,300 victims.

IL Konitz: Germ. „Internierungslager” (Eng. „Internment camp”) set up by the Germans on c. 02.09.1939, immediately after the occupation of Chojnice and the beginning of the German occupation, intended for the inhabitants of Chojnice and the Chojnice poviat. The camp — until 07.09.1939, subordinated to the German army Wehrmacht, and then managed by officers of the genocidal organization Germ. Einsatzgruppen (Eng. Operational Groups), subordinated to the Germ. Reichssicherheitshauptamt RSHA (Eng. Main Reich Security Office) — was organized on the premises of the Juvenile Reformatory Institute in Chojnice. It operated till the end of 11.1939. At least 2,000 Poles were held there, mainly representatives of the local intelligentsia, as well as members of Polish patriotic organizations, e.g. Polish Western Union. Most of them, along with c. 215 mentally ill children from the National Social Welfare Institution in Chojnice (a branch of the psychiatric hospital in Kocborowo), were murdered — as part of the „Intelligenzaktion” — including at the nearby execution site at Pola Igielskie. In the years 1941‐1943, a transit camp for Poles destined for a slave labor in Germany. (more on: www.sdnchojnice.plClick to attempt to display webpage

«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.

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 World War II 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 Stanislav 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

Pius XI's encyclicals: Facing the creation of two totalitarian systems in Europe, which seemed to compete with each other, though there were more similarities than contradictions between them, Pope Pius XI issued in 03.1937 (within 5 days) two encyclicals. In the „Mit brennender Sorge” (Eng. „With Burning Concern”) published on 14.03.1938, condemned the national socialism prevailing in Germany. The Pope wrote: „Whoever, following the old Germanic‐pre‐Christian beliefs, puts various impersonal fate in the place of a personal God, denies the wisdom of God and Providence […], whoever exalts earthly values: race or nation, or state, or state system, representatives of state power or other fundamental values of human society, […] and makes them the highest standard of all values, including religious ones, and idolizes them, this one […] is far from true faith in God and from a worldview corresponding to such faith”. On 19.03.1937, published „Divini Redemptoris” (Eng. „Divine Redeemer”), in which criticized Russian communism, dialectical materialism and the class struggle theory. The Pope wrote: „Communism deprives man of freedom, and therefore the spiritual basis of all life norms. It deprives the human person of all his dignity and any moral support with which he could resist the onslaught of blind passions […] This is the new gospel that Bolshevik and godless communism preaches as a message of salvation and redemption of humanity”… Pius XI demanded that the established human law be subjected to the natural law of God , recommended the implementation of the ideal of a Christian state and society, and called on Catholics to resist. Two years later, National Socialist Germany and Communist Russia came together and started World War II. (more on: www.vatican.vaClick to attempt to display webpage
