There were 3 completely destroyed villages in the German genocidal retaliation raids. Two are well known, Lidice and Oradour sur Glane, while the third case is mostly unknown due to faulty "advertising" - village Lipa in municipality of Matulji, near Opatija (Croatia).
On 30 April the Germans burnt all of the buildings, church and school included (grand total of 172 objects), and killed all of the villagers - mostly women and children. Reason - some shots were fired upon the German column nearby! To make things worse, the criminals thoroughly recorded their "deed".
They killed grand total of 272 villagers (121 children).
pictures taken during the killing raid - this one was recorded in the museum in sei-light, although one can clearly see all those bodies
