The Palmiry massacre was a series of mass executions carried out by Nazi German forces, during World War II, near the village of Palmiry in the Kampinos Forest northwest of Warsaw.
Between December 1939 and July 1941 more than 1700 Poles – mostly inmates of Warsaw's Pawiak prison – were executed by the Nazi German SS and Ordnungspolizei in a forest glade near Palmiry.
Palmiry is one of the most infamous sites of German crimes in Poland, and "one of the most notorious places of mass executions" in Poland. Along with the Katyn massacre, it has become emblematic of the martyrdom of Polish intelligentsia during World War II.

In 1948 the forest glade near Palmiry was transformed into a war cemetery and a mausoleum. Polish Victims of Nazi German terror whose bodies were found in some other places of execution within the so-called "Warsaw Death Ring" were also buried in the Palmiry cemetery. Altogether, approximately 2204 people are buried there.
I entered the search engine Palmiry and found nothing. So I made a post.
Yes, and it was a correct thing to do, because there wasn`t a seperate thread about Palmiry before, only a single post in Forgotten Holocaust thread. That is why you didn`t find it when you wrote the word in search thread title.
