Enns bridge 1945 Austria

Post by zannekin » 10 Apr 2017 17:21

I am interested in the name of the bridge(s) across the Enns river. Where the German forces surrendered to the Americans on the 9th of may 1945. Are there any pictures of that bridge(s) (1940-1950)? Was the P.O.W. open air camp, in may 1945, just over the bridge?
