Posted by admin on Jun 27, 2009

Polish authorities will rebury the remains of more than 2,100 people, mostly German civilians, recently exhumed from a World War II mass grave found in northeastern Poland.

“Their remains will be transferred to Glinna, near Szczecin … the reburial ceremony will take place August 14,” said Andrzej Przewoznik, head of Poland’s Council for the Preservation of the Memory of Struggles and Martyrdom, told the Polish PAP news agency.

The decision to transfer the remains to a German war cemetery in Poland was taken by German authorities, Przewoznik explained.

According to experts, the grave contained the remains of 2,120 people including at least 1,001 women, 381 men and 377 children. It was impossible to determine the age and gender of others found in the grave.
