details of death

On 11.11.1918 an armistice was signed in Compiègne.

The defeat of Germany in World War I became a fact.

Poland immediately declared independence, initially covering the area of the so‑called Kingdom of Poland, until now under the control of Germany.

From the areas to the east — the so‑called Ober–Ost occupied by Germans from 1915 — evacuation of German troops began.

Before this happened, the Germans signed a secret agreement with Bolshevik Russia (as a kind of continuation of the Brest Peace of 03.1918), under which they were supposed to hand over the lands they were leaving to the Bolsheviks.

And so on 11.12.1918, the Russians occupied Minsk, and on 04.03.1919 Vilnius.

This meant — in the absence of international agreements on the shape of the borders in the east — a war with Poland.

The Russians seized Slonim in 01.1919. Meanwhile, Fr Weber collaborated with the emerging Polish centers of power.

After the city was occupied by the Bolsheviks, he established an information and recruitment point in the presbytery for the units of the Polish „Self–Defense”; directed volunteers to the Polish Army that was organizing in Łapy near Białystok.

Issued birth certificates and supported the volunteers financially.

The Russians arrested him on 27.01.1919, at night, together with his catechist and other Poles who were attempting to form the Polish administration of the city.

Held in the prison in Slonim.

Two days later, murdered in the forest by the road to Baranowichy, near Albertin, and abandoned his corpse in the snow.

Tortured — the corpse showed traces of the dum‑dum bullets, bayonet and saber wounds, the upper part of the skull was chopped off.

The Polish army entered Slonim in the spring of 1919.

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.
