History

Wołuszewo was mentioned in documents in 1583. [2] It had a population of 340 in 1827 [2]

During the German occupation of Poland (World War II), in October 1939–January 1940, the Germans murdered many Poles from the village in the nearby Odolion forest, [3] and at about the same time they expelled hundreds of Poles, who were either deported to the General Government or held as forced labour, while their farms were handed over to Germans as part of the Lebensraum policy (see Nazi crimes against the Polish nation ).
