Almost hidden in the woods of the Hunsrück, on the outskirts of Simmern, a monument to the people of the German territories lost in the “catastrophic” Soviet offensives that ended the Second World War. The plaque at the base of the cross simply says, “POMERANIA, SILESIA, EAST & WEST PRUSSIA, POSEN, DANZIG, SUDETENLAND”; nothing more. An epitaph. July 2015.
