details of death

On 02‑06.08.1920, during the Polish–Russian war of 1919–21 and the Russian invasion of Poland in 1920, a several–day battle for the Ostrołęka took place near city.

The Poles lost it and on 06.08.1920, Ostrołęka and its vicinity were taken over by the Russians.

On 08.08.1920 in Rzekuń, the so‑called „rural revolutionary military–revolutionary committee”, known as „revkom”, whose task was to „introduce the Soviet order” and create the impression of the spontaneous nature of „revolutionary movement in Polish lands”.

The Bolsheviks immediately robbed — stealing furniture, book collections, etc. — and destroyed all the mansions in the area.

In Rzekuń they desecrated an old wooden church and desecrated a burial cemetery.

On c. 15.08.1920, the great battle of Warsaw, known as the „Miracle on the Vistula”, took place, and the Poles defeated the Russian invaders and forced them to flee.

On 19.08.1920 in Rzekuń — still in Russian hands — as a result of Russian robberies, the parish priest, Fr Stanisław Żebrowski, passed away.

A few days later, on the day the Russians fleed nearby Ostrołęka (c. 5 km from Rzekuń), the parish vicar — Fr Gregorczyk — refused to participate prob. in digging shooting pits (according to other sources, in „raking the hay”), or other physical work for the invaders and was murdered by the Russians.

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.
