The Gestapo, the German Secret Police, arrested Father Antoni Rewera, on March 16, 1942. Locked up with many other priests in the royal castle in Sandomierz, he underwent numerous interrogations.
On March 28, 1942, he was deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau, where he became Number 27458. On May 5, 1942, he was shipped to Dacau, where the Germans held thousands of Polish priests. He became Number 30304.
Before long, because of the horrendous conditions, his health began to fade, and he was transferred, on June 27, 1942, to the Invalid Barracks, Block 27, where he died from starvation and exhaustion, on October 1, 1942.
