    WWII Mass Grave Discovered in Prevalje, Slovenia


    LJUBLJANA, Slovenia — The bodies of about 700 people killed in the wake of World War II have been discovered in a mass grave in Slovenia, 65 years after they were herded into the woods and slain by antifascists seeking revenge on Nazi collaborators, an official said Tuesday.

    Marko Strovs, who heads the government's commission for exhuming mass graves, told The Associated Press that researchers examined a pit in a forest near the town of Prevalje in the country's northeast last week and found the remains.

    "Based on what we've heard from local people and what we've seen so far, there could be about 700 bodies buried inside," Strovs said.

    Thousands of Nazi collaborators were executed by communist-backed antifascists after the war; in many cases, victims also included innocent civilians.
    Communist authorities in the former Yugoslavia, which included Slovenia until it dissolved in 1991, played down or denied postwar slayings, though other mass graves have since been found.

    Strovs said the 21-meter (70-foot)-long by 3-meter (10-feet)-wide pit contains the bodies of men and women. Initial findings are that their hands were tied behind their backs.

    "Some of the victims were shot; some seem to have been killed by a tool, possibly an axe," he said, adding that at least some of the victims were civilians, based on the types of shoes they were wearing.


    Details of the 1945 slaying in the Prevalje forest have circulated in the area for years, after a boy reportedly witnessed the executions while hiding in a tree. He has since died, but recent floods caused a landslide that revealed some of the bones, prompting last week's probe. Some of the victims were likely from neighboring Austria, local residents said.

    The process of exhumation will begin once a district prosecutor approves it.
    The discovery follows several others. In 2003, a farmer unearthed remains in eastern Slovenia, where villagers claimed hundreds of Nazi soldiers and civilians were killed and buried. In 1999, experts found a grave with about 1,000 bodied while building a highway near Maribor in northeastern Slovenia.
    Slovenia was a route to the West for many from Yugoslavia who tried to flee post-war reprisals. Many were turned back from Austria and killed as they crossed back over the border.

    Associated Press writer Snjezana Vukic contributed to this report.

    Imagine how much coverage this story would get if this was a grave full of Jews. At present, this story is almost buried with no television coverage as far as I'm aware.

    Were anybody ever trialed and convicted of war crimes committed against the German alliance during WWii? I would be very surprised if the answer to this question is yes.

    I think that to dismiss an atrocity of this nature with the flippant remark "What goes around comes around" is quite shameful and demeans you as a person!

    The irony of it is that many of these victims would have been guilty of nothing more than being Volksdeutsche and being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
    This is clearly a war crime which no one will investigate nor sue for compensation (as is the way with other such atrocities).

    Would you be saying the same thing if this was a mass grave filled with American soldiers on the outskirts of Fallujah?

    Genocide and Nazi atrocities

    Why the personal attack? It's simply a statement of fact. As a matter of fact, it is still happening today.

    Ever heard of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Darfur, Somalia, Uganda, Cambodia, Malmedy, Burma, etc., etc., etc...

    Genocide is Genocide and we are no more Civilized than our emotions and policies allow us too be.

    Germans are apparently not humans and are evil and very worthless, even though they are the most exploited ethnic group in the world

    Germans aren't Evil, though Nazi's were and are and since the cult flourished in Germany there is the problem of guilt by association and a general inferiority complex that most Germanics seem to suffer from and are constantly trying to compensate for.

    Time to grow up, take responsibility, then move on - to the cool and the dark...

    I can assure you that I am not evil and nor do I suffer from an inferiority complex. In fact, when I read stupid, ignorant posts like yours I feel quite the opposite!

    Anyway, you just keep watching those Hollywood movies about the “evil Nazis” and how the USA saved the world. They clearly pander to your smugness and provide you with a far easier option than researching the facts.
