The Anastazy Piotr Polanko’s monograph “The Franciscans in Annaberg during second World War” is anew publication concerning the history of the Annaberg’s cloister just before the2nd World War and during the war. It has been published by St. Antony’s Franciscan Publisher in 2013. It was elaborated on the basis of archives of Annaberg’s Franciscan cloister. The author had to make an effort to translate the remaining documents from German. In his book he presents biographies of friars who lived in the cloister during first years of war, their ministry work with number of statistics regarding trips, sermons, retreats, pilgrimage movement, and then the moment of their exile from Annaberg and gaining the church property by Nazis. You can also find information about father Franciszek Dusza’s work who was then arector. In his work, despite some obscurities, Polanko clearly presents tragic history of war, when the sanctuary could not be used as atemple, and the German authorities tried to repress the pilgrimage journeys. This is asignificant publication for those interested in Annaberg history, the sanctuary or the Franciscan Wrocław province.
