ww2dbaseThe famous Nilov Monastery on Stolbny Island north of the city of Ostashkov, Russia was used by the Soviet NKVD as a camp for prisoners of war after the Soviet invasion of Poland. It held about 6,300 Polish policemen and prisoners of war, most of whom would be executed in the city of Tver within a short period of time. This camp would serve in a similar purpose after the Soviet Union re-captured Poland in the later stages of the European War.
