A mass grave containing the remains of German prisoners of war has been discovered in the Czech Republic. The grave, containing the remains of 55 men, was found near Drazenov, close to the city of Plzen. The search for the graves of German soldiers was instigated by the German government at the request of the families of German soldiers who went missing during the war. The remains have been excavated and are now being examined by German experts who will try to identify them.
