Professor Wim Coudenys (KULeuven) and IFFM volunteer Patrick Rapoye have spent the past two years researching the little-known story of the Russian victims in Belgium during the First World War. They compiled their findings in the third essay collection of the series on the List.

Fallen far from the Fatherland

The focus of the research is on the killed Russian prisoners of war, but the essay also touches on other traces of Russian presence in Belgium.
