    Default Stalag IV-G /IVB Allied Prisoner of War work party list?

    I recently purchased this from Ebay

    It is a list of names written on the rear of a Luftwaffe map (covering Isfahan, Iran dated 1941)
    The names include 11 British, 3 Dutch, 2 Serbs, 1 American and 1 Pole.
    The seller included print outs from Ancestry.com of the British names identifying many of them as P.o.W's (their d.o.b and P.o.W numbers match)

    Ancestry.com shows the British as being held at Stalag IV-G which was a transit camp

    Stalag IV-G - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Below is a copy of the Red Cross report

    Stalag IVG

    The list, however, reads IVB

    Stalag IV-B - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Stalag IVB

    The Pole, Stanislar KIETBASA(?) is recorded as camp XIIA

    Stalag XIIA


    The camps all appear to be in and around the same area and provided prisoners for work parties or 'Kommandos'

    The ink handwriting appears 'Germanic' in my opinion (the pencil is obviously German). The pencil writing in the top right, although difficult to decipher, appears to show the break down of the prisoners - 18 prisoners in total, 12 British and the Pole, 1 American, 2 Serbs, 3 Dutch.

    Thus, I believe that this is a list/register of Prisoners of War who have been put on a work party.

    I am still researching it, however, if anybody has anything to add or believes that it relates to something else please let me know.

    Thanks for the comments. I recently found out that the Polish name is actually KIEŁBASA, which is Polish for 'sausage'! I initially thought that he had given a false name to the Germans, however, it appears that there are a lot pf people out there with the surname KIEŁBASA and quite a few named Stanisław. Unfortunately I have not been able to find the Stanisław KIEŁBASA with the date of birth of 8.5.22 (There is one of a similar age who appears to have lived in the US and another one who appears to have been tortured and killed in the 1950's for being an anti-communist)

    That's right. In the left above it says Kdo Böhrigen. Kdo means kommando, in this case most probably an Arbeit Kommando, and Böhrigen is a place in Germany if I googled it right.
    Very nice list!!

    Many thanks - I hadn't even looked at Kdo Böhrigen (I was too busy looking at the names!)
