    Default German Prisoner Of War Camp In Vels or Wels Siberia

    Hi folks
    I was wondering if anyone knows anything about prisoner of war camps in Siberia. I have recentley found out that my wifes grandfather is actually a German Prisoner who was in this camp in WW2.
    Looking on Google only gives you page upon page of nonsensical shite as usual.
    I would be very grateful for any information because we can maybe put it down to a few hundred people or so
    Thanks for anyones help

    Hello sSterbebild.
    Many Many thank´s for your post and link. It has been really helpful and we have already been able to find the area of the camp and the possibility that only 366 prisoners were kept there. That means we can possibly find out a bit more about who was in the Camp.
    My wifes mother was born in Siberia in 1947, and her whole life looked totally diferent from the rest of her family. Just before her mother died she told her that her father was actually a German prisoner of war from one of the prison camps. I´m sure he never survived the war and returned to Germany but after all these years it would still be interesting to find out what actually happened to all the prisoners from this camp.
    Thanks for your help it is very much appreciated
