Massacre of Jewish Prisoners on the Samland Peninsula - Documents, Introduction

Early in 1945, the last remaining prisoners — most of them Jewish women from Lodz and from Hungary — held in six Nazi concentration camps in East Prussia, subsidiaries of the Stutthof concentration camp, were brought to the Samland Peninsula on the Baltic shore and murdered near the town of Palmnicken (now Yantarnyi, Russia). The documents presented are two eyewitnesses’ testimonies (one by a local resident and one by a survivor) and five compiled by units of the Soviet army when they entered the area; one of the latter documents contains brief testimonies by local residents. The documents are preceded by an introduction (pp. 349–351).
