Wolfsberg Weekend July 2013


From the 26th to 28th July, the Town and People of Wolfsberg played host to a group consisting of one ex-POW, Eric Bardsley, and 115 relatives of ex-POWs of Stalag 18A. Those of us who attended that weekend will never forget the friendliness and hospitality that we were shown.
