After the German Socialists confiscated all the land and property of the monastery in Górna Grupaand and turned it into an internee camp, they arrested the steward of the monastery, Father Stanisław Kubista, on October 28, 1939, as well as the other 63 members of the religious community of the Society of the Divine Word Missionaries.
Soon an additional 80 priests, from Pomerania, were also arrested and held captive in the monastery, but a dozen or so of them were shot in a nearby forest.
Eventually transported, via cattle car, to Sachsenhausen, Father Kubista, who had suffered starvation, exhaustion and exposure, developed pneumonia upon arrival to the camp.
The sadistic guards threw him into the latrine, where he remained for three days, after which he could no longer stand or walk.
At roll call, on April 26, 1940, he lay on the hard plank floor as the other prisoners stood at attention.
"You have nothing to live for," said the kapo, a prisoner, a German and a professional criminal.
Then he walked over to the priest and stood with one foot on his chest and the other on his throat until he crushed the bones in Father Kubista's chest and throat.
