This documentation was compiled by the German-Russian Museum Berlin-Karlshorst in cooperation with the Office for War Grave Maintenance and Commemoration of the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Berlin. It is intended to give relatives, researchers, schools and other educational institutions, as well as other interested parties an overview of Soviet and Russian war grave cemeteries throughout Germany and to assist them in locating these sites.

On the pages of the documentation entitled “Soviet War Grave Cemeteries in Germany” you will find information on where in Germany there are graves of Soviet victims of war and despotism. Some 4,100 locations are listed at which the graves of Soviet victims of World War II and the memorials dedicated them could be confirmed.

Also included are the graves of World War I Russian prisoners of war and relatives of the Soviet troops stationed in Germany after the end of the war. This implies World War I.

The gazetteer is a contribution toward remembering and honouring those who died in the struggle against National Socialism or died during German imprisonment.
