Stalag VIIIB was one of the biggest camps of the Second World War, holding up to 48,000 prisoners. This site is built around a growing database of names ( lamsdorf. com/names.html) with the aim of recording and preserving experiences and reminiscences. The site is not without fault, but there’s some fascinating content including back issues of in- camp magazine The Clarion, between January 1943 and Christmas 1944. The site’s owners stress that they have no extra information or centralised archive relating to former PoWs, but there is a ‘Help with Research’ page.
