Despite the German Socialist policy that relegated ethnic Poles as a second-class nation suitable only for slave labor, Sister Maria Wiśniewska secretly taught catechism and reading and writing, for which she was arrested. Dragged to the Gestapo headquarters, she was brutally tortured: her head looked scalped, her mouth deformed with broken teeth, lacerated lips and gums, and she could not stand because of broken bones. But she bravely bore her sufferings, singing hymns, praying continually, and never revealing anything. She perished shortly after, on November 19, 1943.
