Palmnicken[edit]

What is the difference of small East Prussian town Palmnicken in the times of Prussia, German Empire, Weimar Republic, and National Socialist Germany (The Third Reich) that it had to be specially mentioned to be town inside Nazi Germany? I think the town was the same all the time. The editors should pay much more attention to Amber industry developed around Palmnicken, than mention of the National Socialist adminstration 1933 - 1945. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.113.115.162 (talk) 16:50, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

Stantien & Becker[edit]

Stantien & Becker ist established in 1858 and finished in 1899 (Selling to Prussia; new name: "Staatliche Bernsteinwerke" ( as much as "governmental amberfactory"). The first open pit amber mine was established by Stantien & Becker in 1870 (not 1827; Stantien was born in 1817 and Becker in 1830!) (see i.a. Adolf Brekenfeld: Die Unternehmerpersönlichkeit Friedrich Wilhelm Stantien und Moritz Becker. In: Bernstein - Tränen der Götter. Bochum 1996, ISBN 3-921533-57-0. -- Hl1948 (talk) 21:19, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

Two notes[edit]

The first paragraph of the section on the Palmnicken Massacre should be footnoted as to sources.

Native speakers of Slavic languages who author articles on English Wikipedia should remember that English requires frequent use of the article the before nouns — but not all of them! I also found several misspellings and missing prepositions. Sca (talk) 16:19, 29 December 2012 (UTC)

Reprisal?[edit]

The massacre of Stutthof subcamp inmates at Palmnicken was carried out on 31 January 1945, the day following the sinking of the MV Wilhelm Gustloff in the Baltic Sea with heavy loss of life, particularly civilian casualties. Are there sources confirming that the SS staff executed the massacre at the Palmnicken shore as a reprisal act? -- Deborahjay (talk) 11:47, 21 January 2013 (UTC)
