    You are a liar! All the pictures that you showed from exploration in Russia, not in Slovakia!

    This was a German MG and trench positions found maybe 200 meters from my Office two years ago. The digging went on for about three weeks and covered a huge area in the end. After the battle a heap of mixed Russian and German stuff was thrown in there and It was covered over, Two of the guys were ID'd as Waffen SS, with a couple of Heer and some unidentified - all artifacts removed and DESTROYED! I'd go over and spend long lunch breaks chatting to the archeologists....and picked up a few souvenirs of my own from them.
    What did the Authorities do about the human remains?..........destroyed also! ANYBODY who wants to come to Slovakia and dig around.........please do do but LET the German war-graves commission KNOW if you find any of their boys - the Slovaks certainly don't, they'd rather not be reminded about the whole show.
    Anybody who IS coming over - especially your Polski's........get in touch, I'm pretty handy with a shovel myself!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Fantastic finds, Paul. Thank you so much for sharing this with us.
    I have been digging further east - now I am beginning to wonder why I didnt just stop in Poland
    I have friends in Zielona Gora and go there often but never to dig.
    Must have an Okocim now
    Hope to see many more relics.

    Take regards to your friends in Poland.

    Pozdrawaim.
