World War 2 Two II WW2 WWII


Stalag 4D/Z was situated near Annaburg in Germany. The camp opened in May 1942 and was closed in April 1945.

The camp was used as a repatriation center late in the war.

My late Grandfather, Francis Joseph "Paddy" McLoughlin, was held at camp 4dz near Annaburg and was released by the Americans at the end of the war. Prior to this he was held at Campo 73, Carpi in Italy following his capture by the Germans in North Africa. He was a Lance Bombardier in the Royal Artillery, army number 882792, POW number 247056 and had previously been in France before escaping from Dunqerqe.

If anybody has any information on either camp or knew of my Grandfather I would love to hear from them.
