A Unique View of Stalag 17B

This is a view of Stalag 17B that you might not find anywhere else. The aerial photograph on the Life in Stalag 17B page has been carefully resized, rotated, and positioned onto a Google Earth image. Stalag 17B has been overlaid at its exact location during WWII.

A "pushpin" indicates the identical location (48°26'44.44"N, 15°38'5.68"E) in all of the images on this page. Compare the overlaid image with the no-overlay image and notice the agreement of landmarks such as paths, roads, intersections, and borders. You might want to take another look at the larger aerial photograph on the Life in Stalag 17B page to get a better appreciation of these details.

The "pushpin" in the center of the barracks area is located in the center of an airfield today, the Krems-Langenlois Airport.
