Mass grave of Polish prisoners murdered by Germans during World War II found in Berlin

A mass grave of over 1000 people murdered by Germans located in Berlin revealed new information. The experts discovered that the remains belong to prisoners of the Sachsenhausen concentration camp, of which over 400 were of Polish nationality.

The discovery is the result of research done over the years by a German citizen, Klaus Lautner, who discovered a grave in Poland, stating that the person buried died in Berlin. He gained interest in burials of Poles in Berlin. Over the years the man discovered that there are thousands of graves of Polish people, including prisoners of concentration camps and slave labourers. He also learned that many of the people killed in Sachsenhausen are buried at a cemetery in Glienicke, West Berlin.

A careful query in the archives allowed for creating a list of the people buried in urns of his mass grave. It turned out that out of over a thousand victims 436 were Polish, including 18 priests (e.g. from Warmia and Kashubia; Józef Mężnicki, Kazimierz Lapis, Paweł Zieliński, Marcin Zawadzki, Stanisław Cybulski, Józef Śledziński, Jan Wawrzynowicz). The Nazi concentration camp in Sachsenhausen was locater about 30 kilometres North of Berlin and was operating between 1936-1945. During World War II it held numerous Polish citizen, including professors and academics of Jagiellonian University (Uniwersytet Jagielloński) and AGH University of Science and Technology (Akademia Górniczo-Hutnicza) in Kraków. It is believed that nearly 50000 were held in KL Sachsenhausen, and nearly 200000 people passed through it. Tens of thousands of people died, but the exact number is hard to establish.

German Masurian, Klaus Lautner emotional as he kneels down by mass grave...


Leutner, jak mówi o sobie „niemiecki Mazur, którego serce bije dla Polski i Niemiec”. Jego polska żona pochodzi ze Zgierza.

horrible and sad that we must continue to confront this past again and again as we hopefully move towards healing. but as we can see what happened then is still affecting our nation to this day and not in a good way.

Of course not all of them were descended from Old Prussians, many were descended from various groups of immigrants who flooded into East Prussia throughout history.

Nevertheless, here are 32 pre-1914 carriers of R1a from East Prussia (see the map of birthplaces posted below):

I belong to M458>PF7521>CTS11962>L1029>YP263>Y2912*, so it seems that my distant cousins (the Rosenbaum family) lived in Heiligenbeil (known in Polish as Święta Siekierka), East Prussia.

The Banderia Prutenorum is a manuscript of 48 parchment sheets, 18.6 by 29.3 cm (7.3 by 11.5 inches), composed by Jan Długosz and illuminated by Stanisław Durink, listing 56 vexillae, or banners, of the Order of the Teutonic Knights. The work describes the gonfalons, or battle flags, collected from the field after the Battle of Grunwald in 1410 AD.

"Banderium civitatis, que dicitur Swyatha Szyekirka, in Theutunico Elgebeyth, quod ducebat advocatus de Szwyantha Szyekyrka ex militibus ordinis propriis et mercenariis collectum. "

Jonkowo/Jonkendorf, Warmia














Born in Mątki/Mondtken (Warmia), Jan (Johannes) Hanowski (1873-1968) was a parish priest in Gietrzwałd/Dietrichswalde (1913-1924), then in St. Jacob's Cathedral in Olsztyn/Allenstein (1924-1948), since 1951 prelate. He was buried in Jonkowo/Jonkendorf.

In 2017 we should expect further reconstruction of the historical old town in Kwidzyn/Marienwerder (project cost: over 5 mln EUR)

it's remarkable how much Poland has rebuilt with so few resources. We only hear about Warsaw and Gdansk but there are thousands of sites like this.

I have read about Marienberg - I didn't know it had been restored! It looks wonderful on the outside. Has there been renovation inside as well?
