Mass Grave Unearthed in Malbork/Marienburg

Polish excavators recently unearthed 1,800 corpses of German civilians murdered by the Red Army in 1945 in what is now Malbork Poland. Previously this city was named Marienburg and was part of East Prussia in Germany. This massacre took place as part of a larger ethnic cleansing of some eight million Germans from the eastern territories of Germany in 1945 and 1946. Der Spiegel has the full story in English at the address below.
