After the Gestapo arrested one of the priests in Myszyniec parish, the vicar, Father Adam Bargielski, presented himself, on April 9, 1940, at the Gestapo police station and offered himself in exchange for the release of the parish priest.
The parish priest was released, and Father Bargielski was arrested and transported to Solldau concentration camp. On April 25, 1940, he was transferred to Dachau extermination camp, where he was registered as prisoner number 4860.
On May 25, 1940, he was shipped to Gusen labor camp, where he slaved in the quarries. When he could physically no longer work, he was returned to Dachau, where he was beat to death by a German guard, on September 8, 1942.
