I believe similar incidents were documented in band of bbrother's were free poles executed german troops after they surrenedered.Let's not forget those poles that were captured in north africa or italy were given the same treatment by the germans. Most unfortunate 'case' of no love lost between the two.

July 20th 1944
After regrouping in the town of Angoville-au-Plain, Easy Company tries to capture the town of Carentan. Finally after just over three weeks, Easy Company is relieved and sent back to Aldbourne, England for two months.
Debut date: SUNDAY, SEPT. 16, 9pm/8c. Two days after D-Day, [my notice: what is going on - 2 days after D-Day and in September ] Easy Company is sent to take the town of Carentan, engaging in a successful battle that results in several casualties. Some soldiers, including Pvt. Blithe (Marc Warren), have a difficult time adjusting to combat. After 36 days in Normandy and several fierce battles, Easy returns to England, but their celebrations are short-lived, as news comes that they're moving out again.
On September 17th, 1944, Easy Company drops into German-occupied Holland for Operation MARKET-GARDEN. Due to heavy casualties, a group of fresh paratrooper replacements joins Easy Company in time for a massive drop into German-occupied Holland for Operation Market-Garden. While met with no resistance in Eindhoven, Easy and a cluster of British tanks are repelled from a nearby town by a superior German force, sustaining many casualties as they retreat. The Allied plan to enter Germany through Holland and end the war before Christmas fails.
Easy Company leads a mission on a Dutch dike near Arnhem, Holland. Winters (Damian Lewis) leads a risky mission on a Dutch dike, resulting in a resounding victory, for which he is promoted to Battalion Executive Officer. Dissatisfied with his new, largely administrative job, Winters is concerned about the leadership of the three companies he now commands. After a weekend pass to Paris, news arrives of a massive Axis effort in the Ardennes Forest, threatening to break the Allied lines. Easy Company races in to hold the line, ill-equipped for the bitterly cold weather and the entrenched battle ahead.

It may have been polish soldiers, or it could have been french, you seen the allied troopers ("Poles" red.) dragging out 3-5 german soldiers, make them sit on thier knees and a officer (I presume) shots them all (axis red.) in the back of the head.

Don't forget the encouraged acts of violence by the Soviets (Ylia Ehrenburg) against German POW and civilians.
