Along with other Catholic priests, Father Bronisław Komorowski was arrested, in Danzig, the same day that Hitler, a Socialist, and his death troops stormed into Poland, on September 1, 1939, for the Invasion of Poland, also known as the September Campaign and the 1939 Defensive War.
The German Socialists beat and locked up Father Komorowski in the city's Victoriaschule, but he was soon shipped off to Stutthof extermination camp, where he was imprisoned in a basement and tortured for several months.
Stutthof, 21 miles east of Danzig, was the first extermination camp erected by the Nazis, German Socialists, outside of Germany.
On Good Friday, March 22, 1940, Father Komorowski, along with other Polish political prisoners, was executed in the woods outside Stutthof and all were lumped together in a mass grave.
