    Just found this tragic story.
    "The skeletons of three Catholic nuns working as nurses murdered by Soviet soldiers at the end of the Second World War have been discovered.
    The Red Army invaded Poland when the Nazis withdrew their soldiers in 1944.
    Their forces attempted to seize control by subduing militia as well as religious figures by looting and destroying churches.
    Records discovered from 1945 showed Soviet soldiers killed seven nuns in the order of St. Catherine of Alexandria who were serving as nurses at Marian Hospital in Olsztyn.
    A project by the Institute of National Remembrance in Poland was launched to discover their remains and Polish archaeologists announced they found the remains of Sister Charytyna (Jadwiga Fahl) in Gdansk last summer.
    In October they found Sister Generosa (Maria Bolz), Sister Krzysztofora (Marta Klomfass) and Sister Liberia (Maria Domnik) in Orneta.
    And now the bodies of the last missing trio, Sister Rolanda (Maria Abraham), Sister Gunhilda (Dorota Steffen) and Sister Bona (Anna Pestka) have been found too.
    Experts also unearthed crucifixes, ‘religious clothing’ and rosaries from around the remains, according to Live Science".
