Description

Supíkovice (German: Saubsdorf) is a village and municipality (obec) in Jeseník District in the Olomouc Region of the Czech Republic, located in the north-eastern part of the country. The municipality covers an area of 9.27 square kilometres (3.58 sq mi), and has a population of 705 (as at 3 July 2006).

History

The village was first mentioned in 1284, when it was part of fragmented Piast-ruled Poland. It soon became part of the Duchy of Nysa, which later on passed under Bohemian (Czech) suzerainty, and following the duchy's dissolution in 1850, it was incorporated directly into Bohemia. Following World War I, from 1918, it formed part of Czechoslovakia, and from 1938 to 1945 it was occupied by Germany. During World War II, the Germans operated the E166 and E577 forced labour subcamps of the Stalag VIII-B/344 prisoner-of-war camp for Allied POWs in the village.
