I didn't know if this was the right place to
post this but I am looking for information
on Gottwald Stier—30+ Kills (StuG Brigade 667)
Knight's Cross (date unknown). I think I
have a couple of pictures of him working
as a interpreter for the British. It came
as part of a collection, one of the pictures
is of German POW's and had the following
notes with it.
Any information would be appreciated, a photo of himMay 1945, Lauenburg, Germany. Our first task after the war ended was to cope with these German soldiers, 20,000 of them. They had retreated from the Russian Army, but could not cross to the West bank of the Elbe. As they were prisoners of war, we had to control and feed them, before delousing them and arranging transport to take them to POW camps. Lauenburg later became one of the crossing places between the British and Russian Zones, and later between West and East Germany.
would be out of this world!!!
