Jul 2011 • Couples
Located at a hectic crossroad. Memorial for the dead marches’ victims of concentration camps (in German: "Todesmärsche") Landsberg / Kaufering, which took place only weeks befor the end of WW II, made by artist Hubertus von Pilgrim. The inscription reads: “Here the suffering of the prisoners from the Landsberg / Kaufering death camps, in the last days of the war in April 1945 passing into the unknown”. They were deported summer 1944 from labor camps near Kowno en Wilna to the Landsberg / Kaufering area, where the nazi regime in the final phase of the war (as in Mühldorf) wanted to biuld large bunkers as bomb-proof aircraft factories and where these prisoners were used as forced labour. During the evacuation they were driven via Fürstenfeldbruck first to Dachau and from there through the Würmtal, over Percha in Starnberg, Wolfratshausen, Beuerberg, Königsdorf and Bad Tölz to Reichersbeuern/Waakirchen. At this last stop died in the night of 1 to 2 may many prisoners by exhaustion and frost, just a few hours away from the liberation by American troops the next morning.
