A beautiful new World War 2 memorial is nearing completion in Michniów in south-central Poland. Set to open in 2016, the Mausoleum of the Martyrdom of Polish Villages will pay tribute to thousands of citizens who were murdered during the German occupation of rural Poland between 1939 and 1945. Michniów, the village chosen for the memorial, suffered one of the most blood-curling act of atrocity where the entire village —a population of over 200— was massacred by the German Police over a two-day period.

The Mausoleum of the Martyrdom of Polish Villages was commissioned by the Kielce Region Countryside Museum, and is being designed and built by Polish architect and sculptor Mirosław Nizio.
