Russische Slachtoffers

  • museum café

Professor Wim Coudenys (KULeuven) and IFFM volunteer Patrick Rapoye have spent the past two years researching, via the List of Names, the little-known story of the Russian victims in Belgium during the First World War. On 25 November 2021 they present their findings in a new List of Names essay, the third in the series (previously a General Introduction to the List of Names and a volume about Italian prisoners of war appeared). The focus is on the perished Russian prisoners of war, but it also touches on other traces of Russian presence in Belgium. Available from the end of November via the (web)shop of In Flanders Fields Museum!
