Kurland Battlefield Today

Walking this area near Saldus that was fought over many times was very sobering as it changed hands 3 or 4 time a day sometimes during the heavy fighting that went on here in 1944/45.

Thousands of German and Russian soldiers died here and many where just obliterated and walking the hill today the ground is still littered with unidentified human remains mixed with soil and rusty relics and this is why the work we do is so difficult and frustrating sometimes as there is no way of ever identifying these poor lost souls.106 107 108
