German Socialist Gestapo arrested Father Franciszek Rosłaniec, on November 12, 1939. Shipped to Dachau extermination camp, his forearm was tattooed with the number 22687.
Soon, too sick to labor, the priest was moved to Block 29, the invalid barracks, and eventually placed on a train, the Invalid Transport, to Austria, where delivery vans were waiting and loaded with the prisoners.
Headed to Hartheim Euthanasia Center, the vans were, instead, converted to gas chambers when guards inserted exhaust pipes into the vans. Occupants were gassed and died within minutes, on November 20, 1942. Victims were cremated, and their ashes were sprinkled over Austrian fields.
