I am interested in hearing from any survivors of the liberation of Oflag VIIA in Murnau. My father was a Polish prisoner of war ther for the duration of the war on the European front.
If anyone has any stories from that time, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.

Dear Izabella, My cousin, Rick Woldenberg
knows two survivors of the
POW camp in Woldenberg Germany (now renamed Dobiegniewo, Poland) who were transferred to Murnau
and liberated by Companies A and B of the
66th Armored Infantry Battalion and the
Company C of the 43d Tank Battalion on April
The two survivors were Polish soldiers.
You can contact Rick Woldenberg at
If you need to contact the 66th Armored Infantry Battalion, Call George O'Bryan
618 282 6079,
or the 43d Tank Battalion call Mark Ault
765 459 5245.
I first heard of Murnau when it was mentioned on television during the Olympic
Games coverage. The program said that
the 12th Armored Division freed these prisoners.
Good luck! Mike Woldenberg
