details of death

After the outbreak of World War I in 1914, due to the Russian defeat in the Battle of Gorlice in 05.1915, resettled deep into Russia, to Rostov and nearby Starocherkasskaya village (panic escape of c. 3 million Russians from Polish territories — the administrative and military apparatus of the Russian occupation — went down in history under the name „bezhenstvo”).

After the Russian defeat in the Polish–Russian war of 1919‑1921, returned in 1922 to independent Poland.

Took over the parish in his home Gnojno village, where got into a long–lasting conflict with the local faithful of the Greek Catholic Church, who tried to recover temples looted for the benefit of the Orthodox Church in tsarist times (the Russians at one point outlawed the Greek Catholic Church). This was the case, among others, in the neighboring Stary Bubel village.

In 1938 moved to Svislach, c. 12 km from Levshovo, where the Orthodox Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary parish was led by his son.

After the Russian attack on Poland on 17.09.1939 (Germany attacked Poland 17 days earlier) and the start of World War II, in the area of Svislach — due to the slow relaxation of Polish power — a period of anarchy occurred, as all over the Belarus. At the same time, special communist sabotage groups, trained and armed with machine guns and grenades by the Russians, joined the action. Composed mainly of communized Jews and Belarusians — and in Ukraine also Ukrainians — were supposed to enable the Russians to quickly take over Polish territory.

The Russians occupied Svislach on c. 21.09.1939. Was then visisting Levshovo and his son. The son decided to run away and on 20.09.1939, went to Svislach, and from there to Vilnius.

He remained in Levshovo.

On 22.09.1939, two men broke into the parish house in Levshovo: one in a Russian military uniform, the other was a civilian, a local communist.

They took him to the barn.

Forced him to spread straw on the floor.

When did this, shot him in the back.

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
