Thank you!


Thanks to "" created by Matthew Rozell that enabled so many survivors to reunite with their liberators.

The Farsleben Train Tracks is the spot that needs to be remembered for those who were alive and for generations hereafter.

Finally special thanks to all those who have contributed donations to make it possible to acquire this special Monument to be placed near the Train Tracks in Farsleben, which was possible with the help of the local historian Klaus-Peter Keweloh and his son Daniel and the locals of Farsleben, Hillersleben, Wolmirstedt and Magdeburg and last of all the Stranded Train Committee.
