during the night of 21-22.6.1941. a german Sergeant named Alfred Liskov cross the Bolge river, surrendered to russians.he told the german army will attack at 3:15 on 22.6.1941. Fortunately,his name was recorded by history. Stalin,Zhoukov know his name.
What happened to him then? Killed during the later german attack?
maybe at that time, he still not far away from the border.

Alfred Liskow (Liskov, Liskof); 1910 — 1942 (?)) — a German soldier, antifascist, defected June 21, 1941 at about 9pm across the Bug river and surrendered to the Russian border soldiers. On the eve of the German invasion into the Soviet Union he told the Soviet High Command about Germany's plans to attack the country on June 22, 1941 at 4 in the morning.



Alfred Liskov was born 1910. Before joining the German military 1939, he worked as a furniture maker at a furniture factory in Kohlberg, Bavaria (The Russian NTV channel reported that the city was in Prussia and now it's part of Poland).

Served at Infantry Regiment 222 of the 75th infantry division stationed on the eve of the invasion north to the village (town) of Sokal north to Lemberg (Lviv, Ukraine). At that time he was 30 years old. After learning about the German invasion, he left his military unit and having swum across the Bug river on June 21, 1941 at about 9:00 pm surrendered to the Russian border patrol soldiers of the 90th Border Unit. During a questioning he said that at dawn on June 22 the German Wehrmacht would attack along the entire German - Soviet border.
After that the Soviet authorities used him for their propaganda. January 1942 he was arrested and put to a Russian prisoner camp. He was rehabilitated July 16th, 1942.

PS: 1942 he was still alive, but nobody knows what happened to him after the Russian "Gulag" camp.
