Bauleitung der Luftwaffe Vejle Personalausweis
Great document to share, a Personalausweis for a Danish worker at Luftwaffe in the town Vejle,
General: airfield (Fliegerhorst) in south-central Denmark 21 km to the west of Vejle and
1.6 km SW of the village of Vandel.
History: construction is believed to have commenced in Dec 43 and was still underway in
Nov 44 under German and Danish firms contracted by the Organisation Todt. A branch rail
line was initially run to the work site and this typically transported 700 Germans and Danes
along with tons of construction material daily. Documented postwar accounts state that
about 800 locals were evicted from their property to make way for the airfield and that
upwards of 1,240 German troops were used to supervise and guard the site.
