Skeletons of WWII-era nuns murdered by Soviets unearthed in Poland


Excerpts from an article published on Live Science that, disappointingly contains some false information.

“… Russia’s Red Army invaded Poland in 1944, as Nazi Germany withdrew their soldiers….” FALSE !

CORRECTION; True fact is, that Russia’s Red Army invaded Poland on September 17 1939, two weeks after the German invasion, and in conjunction with the agreement between USSR and Germany, signed by the secret Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact.

Religious objects, such as crucifixes and medallions, helped experts identify the victims.

Archaeologists recently unearthed the skeletons of three Catholic nuns who were murdered by Soviet soldiers at the end of World War II. Their discovery concludes a months-long search for the bones of seven nuns who were killed during the former Soviet Union’s brutal occupation of the war-torn country. 

Russia’s Red Army invaded Poland in 1944, as Nazi Germany withdrew their soldiers. During that time, Soviet forces sought to seize control by suppressing Polish militia and religious figures, imprisoning, deporting and killing Polish soldiers, clergy and civilians. Records from 1945 documented Soviet soldiers slaughtering seven nuns in the order of St. Catherine of Alexandria, representatives of the Polish Institute of National Remembrance (IPN) told Live Science in an email.

To find out where these murdered nuns were buried, archaeologists first excavated a site in Gdańsk in July 2020, where they found the remains of Sister Charytyna (Jadwiga Fahl), according to a statement from the IPN. An excavation in Olsztyn in October revealed what are thought to be the remains of Sister Generosa (Maria Bolz), Sister Krzysztofora (Marta Klomfass) and Sister Liberia (Maria Domnik), all of whom were nurses at Olsztyn’s St. Mary’s Hospital.

To find the remaining three nuns, archaeologists in December excavated a site in a municipal cemetery in Orneta that measured about 215 square feet (20 square meters), using local archival records, such as a hand-drawn burial plan, to find the nuns’ bodies. To reach the graves from 1945, they first had to exhume more recent burials that were on top of them. The remains they eventually found are thought to belong to the last three nuns in the group: Sister Rolanda (Maria Abraham), Sister Gunhilda (Dorota Steffen) and Sister Bona (Anna Pestka), according to a separate IPN statement

Historic documents, the age and sex of the remains, and the presence of numerous religious objects indicated that the skeletons belonged to the murdered nuns, the IPN said. The religious artifacts included articles of clothing associated with the St. Catherine order, small rosaries with polished beads, larger rosaries for wearing on a belt, a cross inlaid with metal designs and two medallions “with images of the holy family,” IPN representatives said in the email.

“Mass terror ensued”

When the Germans began retreating from Poland in 1944, Russia seized the chance to take control of the country. “Mass terror ensued in the territory occupied by the Soviets,” according to the Warsaw Institute, a geopolitical think tank in Poland. As the Red Army advanced into cities and territories, soldiers looted and burned churches and religious buildings, and nuns were treated “with particular cruelty,” IPN representatives said. 

In February 1945, Russian forces descended upon hospitals in Gdańsk-Wrzeszcz, Olsztyn and Orneta, where nuns in the St. Catherine order served as nurses. Soldiers beat and stabbed patients and attacked the nuns who intervened, causing horrific injuries; Sister Rolanda’s face “was mutilated and swollen beyond recognition,” and Sister Gunhilda was shot three times, according to the IPN.

Buried objects such as crucifixes helped experts identify the nuns' remains.

Sister Krzysztofora died after “a long fight with a Soviet soldier,” the IPN reported. At the time of her death, her eyes were gouged out, her tongue was cut off and she had been stabbed with a bayonet 16 times, according to the statement.

DNA analysis of the seven skeletons is underway at the Forensic Medicine Institute in Gdańsk to confirm the nuns’ identities, and Catholic clergy in Poland are seeking beatification for the murdered St. Catherine sisters, according to the IPN.
