Russian War Cemetery Bocholt, Barloer street

1,736 Russian prisoners of war were killed by typhus, hunger and violence in the former "Stadtwaldlager Bocholt" and found their final resting place in an independent cemetery on Vardingholter Straße. Only numbers on small stone slabs mark their graves, a list of names does not exist anymore. Nameless, they remain witnesses of history.
