World War II-era mass grave discovered in Lublin

Polish authorities have identified a World War II-era mass grave in Lublin and are checking to see whether they were Jewish Holocaust victims.

The bodies, which number at least several dozen, were discovered at the Górki Czechowskie park following a resident’s report.

The Polish Institute of National Remembrance, which is heading the investigation, told the Polish media it will issue its findings about the site, which contains dozens of bodies at least, in the coming weeks.

Lublin was a major hub for Polish Jewry before the Holocaust, with about 40,000 Jews living there.
