After the start of the Second World War, on Sunday, 3 September 1939, German troops occupied Bieruń Stary. Since then, the factory worked for the needs of the Third Reich. After years of war turmoil, on 28 January 1945, the approaching Soviet troops liberated Bieruń. The Germans, just before the entry of the Red Army, wanted to blow up the factory. There were 20 tons of nitroglycerine, dynamites, fuses and detonators in the warehouses at that time. Two brave foremen, Franciszek Waluga and Robert Langer (together with others responsible for the “work of destruction”), made sure that the factory remained intact.
