    Default Death Notice Translation Help - Albert Sigrüner

    Hi guys

    Can anybody help me translating this Death Card? I have established the basics:

    He was in an Infantry Regiment (unsure of rank?) and was awarded an EK2 (and another award I couldn't work out? - 'des Berw. Abzeichens')

    He died on 24 September 1943 though I can't quite decipher where aside from it being in the East (possibly 'Borrisow' but cannot find this online).

    I think he was 35 at the time of his death.

    Can anybody help me fill in any of the gaps or anything else I'm missing? I presume we can't find out the specific regiment/unit either?

    Cheers!
    Tom

    He was born in Töging am Inn in Bavaria. He was a Gefreiter in “an Infantry Regiment” and was awarded the EK2 and the Verwundeten Abzeichen. He died at the age of 35 from a severe wound in heavy fighting near Borissow, also spelled as Borisow, or Borisov, now Barysaw in the Minsk region in Belarus.

    The VDK database can only supply the following:
    Gefreiter Albert Sigrüner, hometown listed as Töging
    Death date 24.09.1943 at Kriegslazerett 4/626 mot. So he was evacuated to a medical facility after being wounded. Listed in the memorial registry at Berjosa, Belarus. His remains were not able to be identified and therefore there is no grave stone.

    This is what it says in German:

    Gebets-Andenken
    an meinen unvergesslichen Gatten, unseren guten Sohn und Bruder
    Albert Sigrüner
    von Töging am Inn, Gefreiter in einem Inf.regiment, Inhaber des EK2 und des Verw. Abzeichens,
    welcher am 24.September 1943 bei den schweren
    Kämpfen im Osten infolge einer schweren
    Verwundung bei Borissow im Alter von 35
    Jahren den Heldentod für Vaterland starb.

    So bin ich geschieden ins bessere Land,
    Im Herzen den Frieden, das Schwert in der Hand,
    Vom Blut gerötet, die Sünden gebüsst,
    Vom Feind getötet, vom Heiland gegrüsst,
    Drum stillet die Klagen, empfehlet mich Gott.
    Lasst tröstend euch sagen: die Liebe ist nicht tot.

    Durch Hans Fischer, Töging am Inn

    Hi all

    Thank you so much for your replies, I never thought beyond the translation I would be able to find out even more. Incredible stuff. You're top blokes.

    I have another death card I would like to look into I will start a new thread, if anybody is able to assist on that one too I would greatly appreciate it!

    Cheers
    Tom
