INSURED SHIPMENT / OWN COLLECTION

The National Bank of Poland issued a coin commemorating the crime in Piasnica. 

Piasnica is a place of the biggest mass German crime in Pomerania, one of the first crimes of such a large scale in Europe, committed in the initial months of the World War II on civilians. In autumn 1939 about 30 thousand people were murdered. 

The victims of Piasnica included representatives of the Polish leading class from Northern Pomerania, Pomeranian Jews and people transported by train from the Third Reich, among them mentally ill people, Poles living in Germany before the war and opponents of the Nazi ideology. 

On the obverse of the coin we can see pine trees - a symbol of the forests of Piaśnica, the place of execution and suffering of thousands of the murdered.

The reverse of the coin shows the last image seen through the eyes of the victims - trunks of pine trees, silent witnesses of the crime. Behind them is a relief of figures lined up in formation before the execution.
