Stalag 308 Memorial at Kursk

Beitragvon Jordi » 03.11.2009, 13:03

Our reader Hartmut Morgeneyer contributed photos taken at the Stalag Memorial in Karl Marx Street, Kursk, Russia.

The inscription on the plaque reads:

Here rest
Soviet prisoners of war
killed in 1941-1943
in a branch of the German camp
STALAG 308 (VIII E).
Their number is unknown.

So far, we had had no knowledge of this POW camp whose official name was probably Stalag 308 (VIII E)/Z. It was a branch camp (Zweiglager) of Stalag 308 (VIII E). The main camp changed its location several times. It was moved from Neuhammer am Queis (now Swietoszow), Poland, to Sumy, Ukraine, and finally to Bathorn, Germany. Another POW camp in Kursk was Dulag 314.

The site was later used as a Soviet POW camp (no. 147). Hartmut Morgeneyer's father Wilhelm was one of the German prisoners who died there. This page tells his story.

Don't know why readers haven't contributed yet on such an iconic story. Preparing easier version of story, will share soon, hoping will bring some responses at large. Feeling sick!

The memorials of great war heroes are ignored everywhere through ages. This is a common practice in all parts of the world. In some countries these memorials are destroyed to create space for new building and houses. It is really unfair to the family of these warriors and to the society as a whole. Peace.

You are right. It is not just that they are getting forgotten but the people are in rage that the monument still exists. The people are rude...

This always gives my goose bumps while reading these posts. I don’t know why. I actually respect all those great souls who gave their life to protect us. But then this world is still cursed with all those war and hatred. We should be ashamed of it.
