On August 12, 1944, retreating SS men rounded up 560 villagers and refugees — mostly women, children and older men — shot them and then burned their bodies.
This massacre was carried out by the 2nd Battallion of SS-Panzergrenadier-Regiment 35 of 16th SS Panzergrenadier Division Reichsführer-SS, commanded by SS-Hauptsturmführer Anton Galler.
The village itself was also destroyed and after the war, only part of it was rebuilt.
