Hello
I'm helpjng out some relatives of the family of Mr De Raedt "Fons" ( Dominicius Alfons De Raedt, born 12.07.1921) who was KIA in Gross Schlatikow on March2nd, 1945. Is there a possibility that the story about the grave near the FLAK is about him of his tw other fellow compagnions killed at that spot too?
Have you reporst of him in your datafiles, Piotr?
Has anyone after all thes years (sinds this posts in 2008) additional info or visuals about this group (pictures, maps, positiions on the day of 2.3.1945,...) in Great Schlatikoww near Zachan, Poland?
Best regards,
Herby

Hello Herby,

According of the Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorge is De Readt Dominicus Alfons (watch the e and a they switchted in the name) missing at Slodkowo in Poland. His name is mentioned in the rememberance book at the cemetary Stara Czarnowo

"In dem Gedenkbuch des Friedhofes Stare Czarnowo haben wir den Namen und die persönlichen Daten von Dominicus-Alfons de Readt verzeichnet."

The pictures above are at the border in Germany at Rosow so is from later.

Greetings

Hello Wim

Thanks for your answer. This is helping me out, certain.
Is there a digital source to consult which shows views (such as maps or topo-cards) with the positions of the soldiers at that day? In "Wee de overwonne" and a Dutch internet source, I kan find rather 'general' positions of the batteling forces region Zachan -Stargrad that time. I'd like to give a quite exact location of the group in the town Schlatikow/Slodokow so that the famlily could visit this spot too.

Best regards,
Herby

Hello Herby,

I don't know if very detail maps are available.

Slodkowo is just above Suchan. It depends if they had time to burie them. If so they mostly were buried arround the Church of the town.

https://www.google.be/maps/place/73-132 ... 6321?hl=nl

I have somewhere read that the soldiers burried at Slodkowo were dug up and reburied at Stare Czarnowo.

The settlements of Klein- und Gross- Schlatikow were occupied by units of the 311th Rifle Division on March 02, 1945.
Then, on the same day, units of the 234th Rifle Division, which were in the second echelon, came here.
26 people were captured.
The initial position of the divisions of the 89th Rifle Corps of the 61st Army of the 1st Belorussian Front before the beginning of the Pomeranian operation is shown here.

Yes, that was very confusing.
But the 2.Kp. had “Flugabwehr auf Selbstfahrlafetten”, and they could be seen as “tanks”.
How could your statement be true, at the very best these would have been SdKfz 10/4 not "tanks".

On March 3, 1945, the headquarters of the 311th Rifle Division was located in Klein-Schlutikow.
The operational summary for March 3 reports on the results of the battle for March 2, when Gross- and Klein-Schlutikow were taken.
45-03-03 17-00 ОС ШТАДИВ311(38).jpg
=========================================
To the Chief of Staff of the 89th Rifle Corps.
Operational Summary No. 029 of the 311th Division Headquarters.
Klein-Schlutikow
17 : 00
3.3.45
Map 100.000/35

1. The units of the division occupy a position according to the scheme attached to the combat report No. 055

2. The enemy provides stubborn resistance to the offensive of the units of the division, firing from 6 machine-gun emplacements, 2 double-barreled anti-aircraft guns, three mortar and two artillery batteries.
He did not take any active actions with live force.
Enemy aircraft did not operate.

3. 2.3.45 as a result of the rapid advance of the division units, the following trophies were captured:
Passenger cars - 7;
Trucks – 18;
Tractor – 1;
Tank T-3 /hit / - 1;
Carts with various military equipment – 10;
The number of machine guns and guns is set;
Anti-aircraft guns 37 mm - 8.

4. Security of the division as of 13-00 3.3.45:
...

5. As a result of the fire impact on the enemy, up to 100 enemy soldiers and officers were killed and wounded.
6. Our losses /according to preliminary data/ - killed - 12; wounded - 45.
7. The condition of the roads is unsatisfactory.
8. Communication: telephone, radio and messengers.


Chief of Staff 311 SDOSD
Colonel /Novikov/

Head of the Operational Department
Major /Neretin/

=====================================


As can be seen from this report, on March 2, an anti-aircraft battery of 37 mm guns was located in the area of Gross- and Klein- Schlutikow, while eight guns were captured.

On the next day, March 4, units of the division of the 311th Division crossed the Krampel River, and the headquarters moved west to KAROLINENTAL (northwest of Scheneberg, east of STARGARD).

From the final summary for March 4, it follows that since March 1, 114 people from different divisions, regiments and battalions, people of different nationalities have been captured:
SS-10TD «Frausberg»;
SS-11MD „Norland“
SS-27 LID "Langemark";
SS-28 LID “Wallonia”;
4 MD "Poliezei".
separate regiments and battalions, including paratroopers and sailors.
Divisions such as the 27th "Langemark" were called the "Light Infantry Division" /LID/ in the Red Army.

I believe that there are grounds for hope to find a scheme of military operations in Klein- and Gross- Schlutikow for March 2, 1945.
