Vermisst in Stalingrad: Als einfacher Soldat überlebte ich Kessel und Todeslager. 1941-1949
Dieter Peeters is one of the last survivors of Stalingrad. He describes the weeks in the hell of the boiler from the perspective of a simple soldier. After being captured in January 1943, he, like tens of thousands of others, is considered "missing in Stalingrad". He goes through horror in a death camp and six long years in a penal camp in the Urals. In 1949 he returns home to Germany. His unadorned memories are a document of suffering.
