My grandfather Earl was in the US 28th Infantry Division and was wounded and captured near Wiltz, Luxembourg on 18 Dec 1944. He was sent to Stalag IV-B and remained there until the Sovs liberated them. He retained a few items from his stay there and showed them to me when I was young. He didn't want to talk too much about the camp. I remember "cold and hungry" as the theme. 35 years later my mom has me going through boxes and I find Earl's items. I took some pix and I thought I'd share them with various places on the internets. Here are his camp tag and dog tag Here's a cigarette box a Russian made for him Here are a couple stick pins. He said they found these in the streets. He figured the locals ditched their Nazi "flare" before the Russians got to town. Also in the box were some 9x19 Parabellum rounds, a 7.92x57 Mauser round, a Ruptured Duck pin, a new set of infantry/US brass, Marksman badge for rifle and machine gun, his Purple Heart and CIB, discharge orders, some French franc notes, a small notebook with family addresses, various ticket stubs from his way back home, and a well worn 1907 Mexican 50 centavos piece. I wish I'd heard the story behind that!
