Hello, my Name is Husky and i come from Germany. Iam 15 Years old. (My English is not so perfect, sorry.)

Iam pretty interesst at the 2nd World War, because it was one of the first modern Wars. The Weapons, tactics and the people, who fight at this war.

I looked a lot of films and documentations, like "Der Untergang" (Downfall) or Band of Brothers. (Yes this is not an Film for my age, but at my age, everyone looks such films.)

I hope my age and my english are no problem for you.

So i will say again: Hello!

The medals are received upon a certain number of posts. The first one you get on the 20th post I believe. It gets harder to get more after that.

Here is link to the forum guidelines.

Howdy Husky,

Welcome to the forum and it is good to have you here. Don't worry about your English. If we can't figure out what you are trying to say, you can type in Deutsch and we'll run it through a translator.

Wilkommen, don't worry about your English.

Do you have any main area of interest?

Was Hoogstede previously known as Bathorn or Bathorn-Hoogstede? Where Emslandlager XIV then Stalag VIC was?

Bathorn is now an part of Hoogstede. The Emslandlager XIV/Stalag VIC was here, thats correct. At Wietmarschen (Now a part of Hoogstede to) was the Stalag VIC/Z.

Main area of interests? I like the US-History (Independent War, Civil War etc.)

And some of my hobbys are playing PC, watching TV and DvD's and stuff like this.

Husky;
Your English is understandable, and it is good to see an interest in WWII in one so young. There are some very good WWII scholars on this forum as well as a few actual veterans-and you can actually talk to them. Better than any video game at times Husky! I find it encouraging that there are people across the planet interested in this most pivotal epoch in human history. "You want to hear about it? Here it is..."

PS. The Apache Wars in Arizona territory are a fascinating piece of US History; http://jeff.scott.tr...com/indian.html .

There is nothing anymore, only a few trees and houses. I dont have photos, sorry, because I dont know the position. Bathorn is a little part of Hoogstede, only a few houses.

Thank you all, it's nice, that you are so friendly!

At our Grundschule (There is no translation, because our school system is diffrent form the others.) is a big Stone with the following words on it: Für die Gefallenen der Kriege 1914-1918 - 1939-1945. (For the fallen of War 1914-1918 - 1933-1945.)

It's interesting that the start date for WW2 used was 1933, the year Hitler came to power, and not when actual hostilities began.
