In July, 1931 the demolition of the Cathedral started. The last pieces were blown up in December 1931. Some priests refusing to leave the Cathedral were killed for it.

Vladislav Mikosha (1909-2004), who just started his career as a camera-man in 1931, witnessed the destruction of the cathedral and made a film about it. Here you can watch his film and an interview with him.
