details of death

During World War I soldier of the Imperial Russian Army.

After the German and Russian attack on Poland in 09.1939 and the start of World War II, after the beginning of the Russian invasion on 17.09.1939, the remnants of Polish troops left the garrison in nearby Słonim — moving towards the mobilization sites — on c. 18.09.1939.

Revolted Belarusians and Jews — communist activists, but not only them – immediately revealed themselves, waiting for the arrival of the Russian occupier: in some villages they began to erect welcoming gates and set up barricades on the roads, restricting the movement of both Polish troops and civilians.

Two days later in the morning, so on c. 20.09.1939, prob. after the Russian occupation began, five drunken local atheist communists broke into his farm and started „confiscating property”, i.e. robbery. Cattle, agricultural tools, and a warehouse were stolen.

Then tide him up and forced to watch helplessly as his wife was attacked — her arms were twisted and she was dragged along the corridor being stabbed with a sharpened stick in the process. Until died.

His turn came. Had eyes gouged out, tongue torn out, nose and ears cut off...

The naked, battered corpses were thrown into a horse–drawn cart, on which the bodies of three other people were already lying, and taken outside the village.

There, on the swampy bank of the Shchara River, the bodies were thrown into a dug pit, doused with fuel, set on fire, and then covered with manure.

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
