Place of death of Julius von Bernuth

Postby Stauffenberg II » 01 Dec 2017 12:59

Dear all,

I am currently stuck in finding this mystery place of death of Gen. Maj. Julius von Bernuth called Ssochkranaja. It is sometimes spelled Sokranaja, sometimes the place is spelled with the ending "-aya".
Where the heck is it? I know that his plane crashed, presumably by enemy fire and that parts of a near division where ordered to examine the place of death.
But what exactly is the correct designation and more important ... where is it?
Volksbund isn´t helpful as it list his grave being in Apscheronk near Maikop (I fear a mistake).

Thanks for any assistance,
Jürgen

Could it be near Sumy in the Ukraine? Besides his name, that's what comes up when I google it. Lexikon der Wehrmacht has him laid to rest in the Friedhof Frolowskij.

The village is also called Sokhrannaja (original spelling: Сохранная) in another source describing Bernuth's death. I couldn't find a village with that exact name, however in another site concerning the history of the 35th Guards Rifle Division, there is a helpful clue; the division participated in Operation Little Saturn and in this context, a cluster of villages is mentioned: Malaja Losowka, Kutejnikowo, Aleksejewo-Losowskoje, selo (=village) Sokhrannaja. The first three can be found in the Rostov Oblast, near the village of Sokhranowka (Сохрановка) which I believe corresponds to the place in question.

If there has been a name change in an otherwise unknown village in Russia, I don't think someone could necessarily find the information in the web, so maybe it's the correct place after all. Plus, it is the same village mentioned here, albeit with a question mark.

Jake, you did a great job and I think you are right. The 79. Division investigating the place of crash could well cross this area moving from Kupjansk/Woltschansk area to Stalingrad.
Oh well, finding the graves and places of death in Russia is sometimes the hell of a job. Its amazing that there is obviously no continuity in exact village designations ...

Do you know these documents from NARA T-313 R-355? Djogtewo (Dyogtevo) is some distance south of Sokhranovka, on the road to Millerovo. Postojalyj (Postoyaly) is northwest of Rossosh. Ticho Shurawskaja must be Tikhaya Zhuravka, which is in fact just northeast (not northwest) of Sokhranovka. I add a sheet of the 79. ID report that shows Bernuth was killed while the plane was still in the air, not "murdered" as at least one revisionist website claims.
