Stalag Arnoldsweiler

Original size 960 × 1280 px

In Arnoldsweiler near Düren, there was one of the German prisoner of war camps during the Second World War, 30 kilometers from the Dutch eastern border. Many French and Belgian soldiers fled from there too, especially in the early days, as the distance to the French-speaking part of Europe could be covered on foot. Thus, refugee assistance along the Dutch eastern border, especially in Limburg, began with helping escaped prisoners of war on their way home. Later, as everywhere else, there were more and more Russian POWs in Arnoldsweiler, who were forced to work in increasingly miserable conditions in industry.
