Hello Natascha and Vera,
The addresses you gave were interesting:

My relatives were in Soldau, Lager Gneisenau.
(but I don't know the house and room).
So, we have a Lager Bluecher, a Lager Scharnhorst and
a Lager Gneisenau, all named after generals who fought against
Napoleon. I wonder how many other camps or sub-camps there
were, and if they all had the names of generals from the
Napoleonic Wars (but I bet there was not a Lager Wellington).
Do either of you know how long your families were in
Soldau, and how they left? From EWZ files I know my relations
arrived in January 1944, and were still in Soldau in
September 1944. The Red Army must have reached Soldau in
January 1945, I assume our relatives had left before then.
PS Natascha - do you know about EWZ files? If you haven't
seen the files on your family, you should ask here for an
explanation of what they are, and how to get copies of the
files on particular families. It's very likely there would
be a file on your father.
