    Default 12th Mogilev-Yampolsky Fortified Area - Bunker 112

    Hello, community,

    I'm looking for anything from the 76th Infantry Division and 22nd Infantry Division (22nd Airborne Division) that took part in the fighting in Bessarabia. Of particular interest to me are photos, maps, photo albums, military records, magazines (Berliner Illustriete Zeitung August 1941-I'm Sturm über den Dniester!), etc., which show the crossing of the Dniester/Dniester/Tyras rivers near the town of Mohyliv-Podilskyi.

    Furthermore, I am looking for everything that has to do with the storming of bunker 112 (Mohyliv-Podilskyi district) near Ostrovkov (Ukraine), which was carried out by German troops on the other side of the Dniester/Dniester/Tyras bank from the village of Unguri (Moldova) with direct fire from several 8.8s.

    I understand that it is almost impossible to find anything on this topic, but I am sure that the search for a needle in a haystack will be successful.

    I have already done some research and thanks to the guys from the wehrmacht-forum.

    Hello SovPha.

    This looks like a very interesting topic and I agree there is not a lot of information about it.

    Hopefully some of these links may be helpful.


    Here is some general information about the 22. Infanterie-Division -

    Here are a couple of threads about a soldier from Infanterie Regiment 16 (22.ID), with some additional links -

    Pillbox #112 is briefly mentioned here -

    The basis of the UR was made up of long-term firing structures (DOS), or long-term firing points (DOT). One of the so-called "standard" pillboxes of the "Stalin's line" - pillbox # 112 of the 53rd Ur in the Mogilev-Podolsky region looked, in the opinion of all the same authors, as follows: “It was a complex underground fortification structure ... It contained weapons depots, ammunition, food, medical unit, canteen, water supply (operating, by the way, to this day), red corner, observation and command posts. The armament of the pillbox was a three-embrasure machine-gun point, in which three Maxims and two half-caponiers with a 76-mm cannon in each stood on stationary turrets. "..." Stalin's Line "was built not at the very borders, but in the depths of the Soviet territory."

    I had actually forgotten that I have a small document group to a soldier from the 22. Infanterie Division. He served in 2./Kompanie Infanterie Regoment 16 and according to his certificat de liberation, he was serving in Infanterie Regiment 65 at the end of the war.
