    82nd Airborne - revamped site

    Hello Marion, Here we go. The picture below is from Concentration Camp Wöbbelin near th city of Ludwigslust and was a sub camp of the Neuengamme concentration camp. The SS had evacuated from other camps to prevent their liberation from the allies. At ist height, Wobbelin held some 5.000 inmates, many of whom were suffering fom starvation and desease. On may 2, 1945, the 8th infantry Division and the 82nd Airborne Division encountered Wobbelin. Living conditions in the camp they arrived were deplorable. There was little water or food and some prisoners had resorted to cannibalism. When the units arrived they found about a 1000 inmates dead in the camp. In the aftermath the US Army ordered the townspeople in Ludwigslust to visit th camp and bury the dead. Megalles and his men where the first to enter. Best regards Ronald
