    Here is a sign that I have from a group of German photos I have

    Smitty

    The sign reads: Entry of the town is forbidden, nosey people endanger their lives as well as the lives of their comrades..

    Umlietung is: Detour... so I would imagine there was a detour around the outskirts of the city..

    In my book: "Wall Plaques and Official Signboards of Hitler's Germany, 1933-1945"
    some photos were shown with such signs. They and other things were not the subject
    for the book, but shown for the interest of the readers. Signs as shown here in this
    thread could be a great subject for a book.

    Thanks for posting the sign of the Estonian Security Group ( Sicherungsgruppe ) 181 i've not seen it before !
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    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

    House Carles at the Battle of Hastings

    I put together this photo and patch for a friend of mine. It is one of the few photos he has of his father. This would be just after the crossing of the Rhine period - around April 1945. The sign indicates there is a sub-camp of Stalag IX-C right down the road. It was a work camp for Allied prisoners who worked the potassium mines in the Thuringia region. I think this puts him on the same path of the 3rd Army since he was part of the 5. Corps in support of Patton.
