    Sorry
    I was digging after work ... at night, and I have not had the opportunity to photograph my excavations

    These documents were in the corner of the bunker, just lay on the floor

    The bunker here

    Photos of the location general Magnus's bunker I found in this video... Russia 1942/43 ▶ Battle of Stalingrad - Pathological Study of Starvation 6th Army Stalingrad Pocket - YouTube

    Note the characteristic steep bank of the ravine. Location of the headquarters of the 389th Infantry Division.

    Thanks for the kind words!
    I want to share my work last month.

    In a ravine near the city my friends found a large metal target. They invited me to help them dig up it.
    We dug up a frame from a German car - Mercedes-Benz 170vk.
    This is an army version of a Mercedes-Benz passenger car.
    Special name - Kfz 3.
    The condition of the thin iron (wings, doors) is rather poor. But the frame already in the process of restoration.

    The rubber boot was torn and oil spilled out of the rear axle gearbox.
