You pose an interesting question.   I hope others on this list will have some answers.

My father was living in Kutno at the time of the 'expulsion'.  But I do not know when or how he may have left and ended up in Hannover area.  Unfortunately I never had a chance to ask.

My mother was also living near Kutno and apparently she was on the 'last train out'.  Where she ended up in Germany, I do not know. She did not talk much about the War days. 

They met in Germany and married in 1945 in a place called Bispengen and migrated Canada in 1948.

  My father arrived at Soldau Lager Blücher 18.12 1943 by Sonderzug XXVII.

  I am seeking any kind of information about Sonderzug XXVII;


  -Was Sonderzug XXVII part of die Fliegende Kommission?

  - Was die Fliegende Kommission still examining settlers "on the road" in
  1943, or were the trains used merely for transportation of refugees?

  - Was Sonderzug XXVII usually used for transportation to Soldau?

  - Where did the train come from? Lodz/Litzmannstadt perhaps?

  - Is it in any way possible the Sonderzug XXVII could have come from Warsaw?


  Does anybody know anything about the evacuationplans in Poland around dec

  I was told they arrived at Krakow trainstation, and that the Germans had two
  trains leaving; one for Posen and the other for Soldau. They chose Soldau.


  Would it be possible to travel directly from Krakow to Soldau, or would you
  have to switch trains in Lodz?


  Any detail about the trains, routes, evacuation, the overall scene in
  Krakow/Lodz would be much appreciated.


  My father's escape route went from Kiev, Vinnytsia, Ternopil, L'wow/Lemberg
  to Krakow. Between Krakow and Soldau something happened.

  Knowing about Sonderzug XXVII that took my father to Soldau might be able to
  tell me where this happened.


  On a note - would anybody know specifics about Soldau Lager Blücher?

  My father's "address" was

  Lg. Scharnhorst, Haus Berlin, Zimmer 20


  Could this be something that still exists? Does pictures exist?


  I would much appreciate any input, thank you
