During World War II; In 1939, Poland was invaded by the Nazi Germany and they took over the entire country setting off World War II. According to one source, during the invasion of Poland the Vision came to the rescue of Baron Pavlek and his wife, rescuing them from the Baron's brother Felix Pavlek who had joined with the Nazis. However, this encounter contradicts the fact that the Vision did not first appear on Earth until 1940, and could be false. Also early on the war, the town of Grybow was visited by the American hero known as the Angel (Thomas Halloway) who clashed with Nazi forces, liberating the town. Over the years during the war, Poland was a battle ground between Nazi and Russian forces who sought to claim the territory, leading to massive Polish casualties by both factions and the near eradication of their entire culture. Most notoriously, the Nazis set up a series of concentration camps in Poland where the exterminated Poland's Jewish population.
In 1944, Nazi operatives led by General Blauheim and scientist Von Fleagle discovered a rare element that could be developed into a powerful explosive in the town of Lwow. They put slaves to work to mine the material. But these activities were soon learned by the American authorities who dispatched the Human Torch and Toro to destroy the mine.
Poland was eventually liberated thanks to the Allied Forces who fought against the Nazis in May 1945.
