Zhytomyr – Stalag 358


Shortly after Zhytomyr was occupied by the Germans in July 1941, a prisoner-of-war camp for Soviet prisoners of war was established. The camp was called Stalag 358 and existed until 1943. Lack of food, shelter and medicine caused famine and disease to ravage the camp, which contributed greatly to the death of about 110,000 prisoners during the camp’s existence.

Current status: Demolished with monument (2019).

Location: 50°17'07.47"N 28°35'57.63"E

Get there: Car.

My comment:

A well-kept monument with a tomb behind the monument. Easy to find as it is located next to the main road from Zhytomyr – Rivne.
