Massacre during Second World WarEdit
During the German Invasion of Poland in 1939, Wehrmacht soldiers and SS mass murdered 300 civilians from the town on 9 and 10 September. The victims were chosen at random, from all males gathered in the town square and then randomly selected for execution as alleged attackers against German Army. 41% of murdered were teenagers (11 years to 16 years old), but people as old as 78 were also killed. The victims were later buried in mass graves.
