Stanisław Maciejewski collection
Stanisław Maciejewski collection consists of records relating to activities of the Association of Polish Former Political Prisoners of Prisons and Concentration Camps in Germany. These records include prisoner questionnaires containing comprehensive bibliographical information about the prisoners and prospective association members as well as photographs, fingerprints, and Verification Commission notes. The collection also contains correspondence, medical and compensation records, Maciejewski family documents, newspaper clippings, and publications relating to various concentration camp museums and memorials.
Of note, the most frequently cited reasons for political incarceration were participation in the Warsaw Uprising, work sabotage, being a Polish priest or university professor, issuing of false birth certificates, membership in the Armia Krajowa (Home Army), helping partisans, and distributing underground leaflets and publications. Also incarcerated by the Gestapo were people arrested during routine round-ups or as retaliation for Polish partisan attacks against Germans.
