[...]
One doesn´t know if the correct thing to do is to laugh about or to cry about - you, parroting the postwar newspaper articles as were they were facts. :lol:
The Wikipedia article (and other sources) states that he was the leader of the Evangelic Church in Lodz. I understand that it´s better for propaganda purposes to state an alleged war criminal was the head of the entire country. Your source also seems to hide the information that his Polish citizenship got revoked in February 1939 due to the efforts of the Polish bishop Juliusz Bursche.
Obviously he didn´t appreciate the Polonisation of his country what caused him further troubles (got deleted from the list of Polish clergal as "not-being a Polish citizen").
Further informations about him (including a photo, p81ff):
