AB AKTION (Ausserordentliche Befriedungsaktion; Extraordinary
Pacification Action). Code name for the liquidation of Polish
intellectuals and leaders after the German invasion of Poland in 1939.
The task was entrusted to Hans Frank as Governor-General and to his
deputy, Artur Seyss-Inquart (qq.v). More than 2,000 Polish men and
women were apprehended from September 1939 to June 1940 and summarily
executed. A ruthless killer, Frank kept thorough records of his work
in a forty-two-volume journal. Many Jews were among his victims.
