Welcome in another episode of our ,,Native Migrant" zine.
This time few pictures from.
Dynamit-Aktien Gesellschaft(DAG) im. A.Noble'a in Christianstadt.
Ammunition and Dynamite factory. Opened by nazis in 1939 closed in 1945. After 45 looted by Russian soldiers and after 1948 by polish workers.
On around 30 square km more than 220 objects. Still many undiscovered!!. I was there around 15yrs ago. This time I had only 3 hrs to walk around. Great place for 2days of looking and searching in the middle of the forest.
Today only 10 pictures but there's much much more amazing buildings , ruins, underground corridors.
There's still big mystery around this place (Nazis destroyed all documentation and machines).
Amazing and strange place without humanoids (especially in winter).
But keep both eyes open. Very easy to get injured.
Check net for more information.
These men (1st SS Panzer Division, Kampfgruppe Hansen) are smoking captured American cigarettes, standing in front of an abandoned American scout vehicle during the Battle of the Bulge. The man on the left is holding an FN High Power pistol, and is draped in a 7.92mm MG42 ammunition belt. He has been wrongly identified as Walter Armbrusch.
December 18, 1944, Poteau, Belgium
ON THIS DAY: the Battle of the Bulge, also called Battle of the Ardennes, (December 16, 1944 –January 16, 1945), the last major German offensive on the Western Front during World War 2, an unsuccessful attempt to push the Allies back from German home territory, started.
The name “bulge” refers to the wedge that the Germans drove into the Allied lines.
Early on the misty winter morning of December 16, 1944, more than 200 000 German troops and nearly 1000 tanks launched Adolf Hitler's last bid to reverse the ebb in his fortunes that had begun when Allied troops landed in France on D-Day. --------------------------------------------

The Battle of the Bulge (16 December 1944 – 25 January 1945)
In the freezing cold,Private Charles Preston, of Nicholasville, Kentucky, brushes snow from a 30-caliber machine gun mounted on his jeep.His unit is moving against the German counterattack in the Ardennes during the 'Battle of the Bulge' which is barely a week old. December 21 1944.
Disastrous offensive in the Ardennes exhausted the resources of Germany on the Western Front. The German collapse opened the way for the Allies to ultimately break the Siegfried Line.

December 16, 2018 is the 74th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge.
On this date in 1944, the Germans launched their last major offensive of the war, Operation Mist. Also known as the Ardennes Offensive and the Battle of the Bulge, it was an attempt to push the Allied front line west from northern France to northwestern Belgium. The Battle of the Bulge, so-called because the Germans created a « bulge » around the Ardennes forest in pushing through the American defensive line, was the largest fought on the Western front.

16 dicembre 1944 inizia l'offensiva delle Ardenne.
Alla fine della seconda guerra mondiale, la Germania nazista si trovava impegnata ed in difficoltà su 3 fronti (orientale, occidentale e nella penisola italiana). A sud gli alleati risalivano la penisola verso le Alpi con grande difficoltà. A est la armata rossa dopo l'operazione bagration era riuscita a recuperare i territori persi e inflitte molte perdite ai tedeschi, si avvicinava verso la frontiera orientale del terzo Reich, a ovest gli alleati dopo lo sbarco in Normandia, avevano liberato la Francia e il Belgio ed erano a ridosso del confine tedesco. Hitler decise di tentare una disperata mossa e concentrando le sue riserve sul fronte occidentale, contrattaccò le truppe alleate che si erano fermate a causa della stagione fredda. I tedeschi basavano il loro piano su un grande concentramento di forze e sull'effetto sorpresa. Il 16 dicembre del 1944, i tedeschi lanciarono l'offensiva nelle Ardenne in Belgio, approfittando anche di condizioni meteo che non favorivano i voli aerei alleati. L'intento di Hitler era quello di "ributtare" gli alleati visto che il 6 giugno erano sbarcati in Normandia. All'inizio gli alleati furono colti di sorpresa e i tedeschi ebbero dei successi iniziali, tuttavia i problemi logistici e l'arrivo dei nuovi rinforzi americani vanificarono l'offensiva che risultò essere un fallimento.

A Soviet cigarette case with the engraving of a saying "На добрую память Торькии ~1945~" which roughly translates to "In good Memory, Gorkii*". I probably misspelled the name and someone that knows more than me might chime in 😂 maybe @armedcomrade.
It is make of nickel plated brass which seemed to be a common material even back in the imperial Russian days. Even though this case is dated 1945, it may not be "wartime" as it seems to be professionally engraved. Perhaps it was done behind the front lines by a soldier that was a engraver before the war, maybe it was done after the war by a soldier that lost a friend in the war or a family member that lost someone in the fighting. #soviet #sovietunion #ussr #redarmy #wwii #ww2 #secondworldwar #greatpatrioticwar #cigarette #cigarettecase #1945
A Day in the History-
16th December 1942 Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler issued a decree stating Sinti and Roma in the Third Reich had to bedeported to Auschwitz.
That is why it was decided that a Gypsy camp (Zigeunerlager) was established in the BIIe section of Auschwitz-Birkenau. It was in operation in 17 months.
Around 23,000 people were imprisoned in that very camp. 21,000 people were registered as regular Auschwitz prisoners. It's estomated that 370 children were born in the Gypsy camp in Auschwitz II-Birkenau. Additional group of 1,700 Polish Gypsies were murdered upon being deported to Auschwitz. They were not registered as Auschwitz prisoners and did not have numbers.
Out of 23,000 people in the Ziegeunerlager, 20,000 of them died or were murdered in the camp.
In the picture you can see an unknown Gypsy woman who was registered in Auschwitz as a regular prisoner. Unfortunately, there is no information regarding her whatsoever. The pic is the courtesy of the National Archives.

On 16 December 1939, the First Battle of Summa begins. Summa is an important location, since breaking through the defensive lines here would give the Soviets access to the Finnish city of Viipuri and even Helsinki. For this reason, the Summa region was the most-fortified area of the Mannerheim line on the Karelian Isthmus.
Dozens concrete bunkers had to protect Finnish defenders against the Soviet attackers. However, a swampy area east of Summa, the Munasuo Swamp, proved to be a weak point. On the 16th, several Soviet tanks manage to break through the line here, despite being fortified with an anti-tank ditch.
Still, the Soviets were not utilizing this weak point in their plans. They were not ready for a large-scale attack. For instance, many of the Finnish bunkers were not spotted and mapped. Also, the Soviet troops lacked training in coordinating with other parts of the army. Only one tank battalion had had one day of training with the theme ‘cooperation with rifle units in battle’. To make matters worse, most artillery units didn’t yet build observation posts and establish communication lines. They were very underprepared.

Необычное здание расположилось по адресу: ул.Шароподшибниковская, 15. Взгляд привлекает барельеф из деталей подшипника над входом.
Это первый государственный подшипниковый завод (ГПЗ-1), был создан в 1932 году.
В годы Великой Отечественной войнызавод был эвакуирован, но продолжал выпуск подшипников в местах эвакуации (Куйбышев, Саратов и др.). После войны завод в восстановил свои мощности в Москве. ⠀
Теперь это — ОАО «Европейская подшипниковая корпорация (ЕПК) Москва», занимающееся в основном выпуском продукции для компании РЖД.
The first Bearing Factory in Moscow. It was evacuated during the Second World War.
⛓ Now the factory makes spare parts for the hugest Russian Railways monopoly.

The Battle of the Bulge begins.
The Battle of the Bulge began with the commencement of Operation Wacht am Rhein (Watch on the Rhine). This was Hitlers’ last major offensive on the Western Front of World War II, and the Battle of the Bulge would become the most costly battle of the war for the Americans. The offensive planned for the Germans to recreate the drive through the Ardennes Forest during Fall Gelb in 1940 and continue to the port of Antwerp, cutting off 4 Allied Divisions in the process and regaining control of the Western Front. It would also allow Germany time to prepare for an upcoming Soviet offensive in the East. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
With more than 400,000 men and 500 tanks, the German offensive began on December 16th, taking the Allies by surprise and hitting the line in an area considered inactive. The offensive achieved initial successes despite stiff Allied resistance, and the Germans took thousands of prisoners. German progress quickly slowed down in the face of fuel shortages and key bridgeheads being blown up by the Allies. A bulge in the front was created by the German advance, leading to the name ‘The Battle of the Bulge’.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
To the north, Allied troops stood fast at Elsenborn Ridge as the north shoulder of the bulge formed. General Erich Brandenberger‘s Seventh Army was halted by the US 9th Armoured and 4th Infantry Divisions. In the centre, Fifth Panzer Division under General Hasso von Manteuffel almost made it to the Meuse, being halted 80km from where they began. US 7th Armoured Division Held out ya the town of St. Vith for 6 days before finally being overrun on December 23rd. Perhaps the most famous stand of the battle came when Manteuffel was unable to capture the crossroad town of Bastogne from the American 101st Airborne Division. Instead, he bypassed the town and encircled the men, leaving them trapped. On December 22nd, a German order to surrender was sent to the trapped Americans, to which Major-General Anthony McAuliffe simply replied “Nuts!”. Continued below.

"When we got to the Falklands we were in action straight away, attacking Port Stanley on May 1 and putting up a defence against an attack by the Argentinian Air Force. From that moment on there was no rest for anyone for the next six or seven weeks. It was constant. My first action was against three Turbo-Mentors. I was sweeping in and out of the clouds with my wingman when I hit one of them with my canon. The next thing I knew this huge grey shape passed over my cockpit and I just missed colliding with him. I didn’t get a confirmed kill until May 21 when we were protecting the landing at San Carlos.
This Pucará was flying between 10 and 20ft above the ground. Very low. I saw my shells ripping up the ground, then they removed his wing tip and set one of his engines on fire. I had two more runs at him and each time my shells tore his plane apart. After the first one his canopy had been removed, both engines on fire and his fuselage was being shot away, then his ejection seat went. He landed safely and walked back to Goose Green. Very brave. Major Tomba. He sent me a sticker from his squadron after the war" -
Commander Nigel “Sharkey” Ward, Harrier pilot, Falkland Islands, 1982.

Pfc. Frank Vukasin of Great Falls, Montana, stops to load a stripper clip into his M1 Garand rifle while advancing at the snow covered front line sector at Houffalize, Belgium on 15 January 1945. Note in the background two dead German soldiers wearing snow camouflage can be seen.
The Battle of the Bulge commenced on 16 December 1944 when the Germans launched their last major offensive of the war in the densely forested Ardennes region. The aim of the Germans was to capture the crucial city of Antwerp which was where much of the supplies needed by the advancing Allied forces was being brought in by ship. The overwhelmingly superior Allied air forces were grounded due to poor weather allowing the Germans to carve a deep bulge in the Allied lines. Men of the 101st Airborne Division "The Battered Bastards of Bastogne" made their famous stand at the small but crucial Belgian crossroads town of Bastogne to deny the advancing German forces a direct route to the city of Antwerp. But as the weather cleared Allied air power was now able to attack the German forces and supply lines which helped seal the failure of the operation. The Battle of the Bulge lasted from 16 December 1944 -- 25 January 1945 and resulted in an Allied victory as the Germans suffered losses they could not sustain and the bulge in the Allied lines was slowly pushed back.
