Long Description:
Grave of an unknown Russian prisoner of war in Russenholz, named after the grave, near Schneverdingen in Lower Saxony.

The gravestone reads:

Grave of an unknown Russian prisoner of war who died in 1918.
The prisoner had hidden on the Tütsberg farm during his escape. Here he was killed by a fall from the attic. Because the authorities refused to bury him in the Schneverdingen cemetery, the residents of the Tütsberg farm buried him here. The grave was maintained by them until the end of the 1950s.
The wood where the grave is located is today called "Russenholz" (Russian wood or Russian forrest).
