    Most likely this sign was in the city of Smolensk. Because the one in this other photograph indicating the other disinfection station is that city.

    It is that of the Technical School of Physical Education, (also Known as Rotes Haus, for its color) in which a large hospital was installed in the autumn of 1941 and in which a part of the members of the first Swiss medical mission were stationed.

    Although the problem would be much more serious for the soldiers who, after the defeats of Stalingrad or in the summer of 1944, become POW of the Soviets.

    Following the capitulation of the German Sixth Army to Stalingrad, for the first time a huge number of German soldiers became prisoners of war. A reasonable number is considered to be about 90,000 men. Most of them were severely weakened by months of fighting, excruciating cold, and lousy diet, so they suffered from diseases such as dysentery and typhus, since the lice had been cruel to their bodies for months.

    Several hundred German and Austrian doctors, surgeons, and paramedics were captured at the Kessel in Stalingrad. All of them had to organize the different hospitals, first within the city and later, outside of it, where they had to fight with hardly any instruments or medicines against the wounds and diseases of their comrades, especially against typhus.

    One of these doctors wrote down his memoirs (which I recommend here to all interested in the subject) The ustrian doctor Hans Dibold (1904-1991) who in 1949 published his book “Doctor at Stalingrad”.

    Please don´t confuse with another more popular book written by the German novelist Heinz G. Konsalik (1921-1999) who fought on the Eastern Front and was seriously wounded, almost the same title "Doctor of Stalingrad"

    Here we are going to talk about Dibold's novel, the fifth chapter of which is entitled "The fight against typhus"

    Dibold tells us how soon the Soviet doctors realized that the German prisoners were dying like flies, because there had been a huge epidemic focus.
    To avoid losing such a large amount of forced labor and spreading the infection to the civilian population, they began to supply German doctors with certain amounts of drugs to combat typhus. Dibold tells us that the Germans affirmed "we have caught lice and typhus in Russia" and the Russians replied "it is you who have brought typhus"
    Their fight was dramatic due to the poor conditions of the thousands of prisoners with typhus and the harsh living conditions and very little food. The German doctors and paramedics themselves were also infected and died in proportion to the rest of the prisoners.

    The chapter ends by describing the departure from the city after the closure of the hospitals to move the wounded survivors to other places:

    "The mildly ill went behind, on foot, with great effort. We, the doctors, helped to pull or push the carts of the most seriously ill soldiers. The scene was filmed for the film about stalingrad "The Great Walk". In it she sees Doctor Loos, from Hospital II, the Viennese paramedic Plass and some others making their way through the ruined streets of Stalingrad, with their miserable, but so dear luggage.
    Of that human mass that, a few months ago had launched into the assault of the Volga, only sick and crippled with fever remained".

    On July 17, 1944, 57,000 German POWs paraded through the streets of Moscow, captured mostly in Belarus after the summer offensive that led to the annihilation of Army Group Center.

    After the troops, the irrigation machines wash the streets of Moscow with soap and symbolically remove dirt from the asphalt after tens of thousands of German prisoners of war have passed.

    But it was not only a symbolic disinfection. Since 57,000 infested men can carry a few million lice.

    Let´s remember to finish this story that the doctor and Lutheran Pastor Kurt Reuber, surgeon in the 16th Panzer and author of the painting "The Madonna of Stalingrad".

    Reuber, 36, returned to Stalingrad on November 22, 1942, after enjoying a permit in Germany. Two days later the city siege had been consummated.

    He was taken prisoner after capitulation and died on January 21, 1944 in the Yelabuga camp, some 1,000 km east of Moscow, probably of typhus.

    Hi everibody, Hi Karl.

    Reviewing my archive, I had forgotten to upload this photo from my collection. If you are interested in the subject of German triage, you may find it interesting. The begleitzettel can be seen on the chest of the soldier in the background (we do not know if it is for verwundete, Kranke or Kampfsoffverletzte)

    As you know, these cards were tied with a thin rope, generally in an area visible to the wounded soldier's uniform.
    In it, the first diagnoses of the injury and of the measures taken are noted, for example, if the wounded soldier has been medicated or a pressure bandage is applied, if it is a wound that bleeds profusely, etc.
    The cards have strips of different colors on one side for a quick marking of each wounded man, these strips can be torn off according to the state required by the wounded man:

    - Zwei roter Streifen (2 red stripes) Nichttransportfähig = that the injured soldier cannot be transported
    - Ein roter Streifen (1 red stripe) Transportfähig = that the injured soldier is transportable
    - Kein roter Streifen (no color stripe) Marschfähig = that the injured soldier can continue on his own foot
    - One green stripe: non-infectious diseases
    - One yellow stripe: contagious disease
    - Purple stripe has the same meaning as red and is placed on those affected by chemical weapons.

    Regards
