  • Stalingrad Location

    Hi:

    Any one know where the following names would be located in, or around, Stalingrad. They may be railroad lines.

    Bhp. Stalino, Bhp. Skorowataja, Bhp. Jasinowaraja

    The attachment shows the relationship of each to the other.

    Regards,

    John

      Ditto,

      Those are Train Stations. The center one being Stalino Train Station with the other labels being routes to the other train stations.

      Are you sure its in or around Stalingrad? Stalino city was just west of the Mius River northwest of Rostov-na-Donu.

        Agreed with Konev. If it's German I presume there is no 'bhp' but 'bhf' which means 'bahnhof' (train station). Stalino is ukrainian city of Donetsk now. Other names refer to towns in the Donetsk vicinity. I think letter 'n' before them means 'nach' - 'to' in German.

          Wrong City

          Hi:

          It just goes to show that you see what you expect to see. I was at NARA and asked for a section of aerial photos of the area around Stalingrad. Half of the photos were at Stalingrad, but the other half were in the cities of Stalino and Stalingorsk. No wonder it was so hard to match the photographs to an area around Stalingrad.

          Sorry for the bother,

          John

            Well, there were lots of places named after Stalin. BTW Stalinogorsk is Novomoskovsk near Tula now.

              Take a look in Google Earth. Even if you don't find it, there are many great battlefields marked to look at.
              If you can't set a good example, be a glaring warning.
