    Great photos, great write up! What was the total of fallen soldiers recovered? Either way, you guys have obviously done a lot of good once again --- I can only commend you all for the efforts!

    Thanks mate. We found 106 Red Army soldiers in the massgrave, one in a trenchline, 3 heads in soviet helmets with no bodies around(!!!) and in the German field cemetery 23 soldiers was exhumed (3 was exhumed a week before we got there so 26 in total there).

    btw: I jumped into a "discussion" on this topic on a Norwegian forum recently, pointing to all the benefits, as shown here, but I realized I had to give up. It was like trying to discuss reason based on facts and logic with religious zealots --- just crazy. Not to veer anything off of the topic here but this is clearly related and efforts like this just goes to show how invaluable digging efforts can in fact be...

    Anyway, keep the photos and reports coming --- you know we are all watching
