The bodies were of Wacław Sadokierski and Piotr Wądołowski, who were arrested by the Nazis and executed in 1943.

The two bodies were the first identified through genetic testing on remains discovered during the exhumation at a former detention centre in the city of Białystok.

During a ceremony on Thursday at the Białystok branch of IPN, the personal details of the victims and their families were announced.

The remains of 385 people were discovered in several stages of the dig. The work was related to the investigations of the IPN on, among others, war crimes of the UB secret police in communist-era Poland. (rg/rk)
