Monuments in Stalag XX B

In spite of holidays we spent some time over studies about Stalag. Many times in documents and memories of POW's we found that they we moved to Marienburg (po. Malbork) where was Stalag XX B. In this camp soldiers were living in wooden barracks. The same stories, the same experiences but strong way of protection about history. In Malbork a part from very well preserved Commonwealth Cementary, Soviet Soldiers Cementary we found two monuments dedicated to victims of Stalag. Below we presents pictures from our Study Tour.
