Palmiry is a village located at the edge of the Kampinos Forest (The National Park), approximately 30 km (18 miles) north-west of Warsaw. During World War II, between 1939 and 1943, the village and the surrounding forest was one of the sites of German mass executions of Polish intelligentsia, Jews, politicians and athletes, killed during the AB Action. Most of the victims were first arrested and tortured in the Pawiak prison in Warsaw, then transferred to the execution site. In total, the remains of at least 2,115 men and women were exhumed, but it is probable that not all bodies were found. In 1946, the bodies were exhumed and reburied in a new cemetery, situated approximately 5 kilometres (3 miles) from the village itself. The reburial site has been a Polish national mausoleum since 1948.
