Dear Sir:
I’m trying to discover when, and which unit, liberated POW camp Stalag IV-A at Hohnstein, Germany in 1945.
There is little information on-line and what there IS seems to be confusing IV-A with IV-B (liberated by the Russians, April 23, 1945).
My father was a British gunner with the Royal Artillery. He was in various camps, the final one being Stalag IV-A Hohenstein.
Dad said once that American tanks came through IV-A’s front gates two days after his birthday (which would make the date 8th June 1945). That date also appears in his military service record, that the MoD sent me back in 1991. However as VE Day was 7th May 1945, the 8th June seems far too late.
I'm somewhat surprised that I can't find on-line any information on the liberation dates of this particular camp. There are lists featuring other camps but when it comes to IV-A, they all have a blank in the date column.
Any info you can give would be terrific!
