WWII German war prisoner remains exhumed in Kaunas

Danutė Rukienė, senior specialist at the Kaunas Cultural Heritage Division, says tests had shown that the location was once a burial site for two German POW camps. Remains of the prisoners of war who died of exhaustion, diseases and other causes were buried here.

Specialists believe that up to 400 prisoners of war could be buried here. After being exhumed, the remains will be reburied in a section of the Kaunas cemetery for German soldiers.
