Stalag Luft VI – 2007

(Posted: July 23, 2011)

Following is an excerpt from my 2007 journal that I am in the process of adding to the web site. This was the year that I made it to the final area that I needed to reach to complete my mission – Stalag Luft VI (formerly Heydekrug, East Prussia; today Silute, Lithuania).

“What an effect that dad’s experience would have on him in his life – I can see in his existence as my father the things that certainly carried over from his camp life as a POW – not only results of his life as a POW but as a young man leaving his home and loved ones to defend his Country – to train as an airman and gunner and then to fly missions over enemy territory. It all combined to define his life as I knew him.”
