World War 2 Two II WW2 WWII


Oflag 12b was located at Mainz and Hadamar, Germany.

My father, Capt/Lieut Bert Hyde. (English) SWB and Welch Regiments, was in Oflag XIIB at Hadamr, Franfurt-am-Main. He mentioned that the British prisoners knew that many people were entering the camp next door but few re-emerged. Was this the death camp of Hadamr? He also told of being marched out of the camp by the SS and then being returned to the camp.
