Hello to all :D; more..............................

Women who received the Iron Cross 2nd Class - DRK (German Red Cross) nurse Elfriede Wnuk!

(February 15, 1916 in Mingfen, district of Osterode/East Prussia; August 16, 1999 in Osnabrück)

On September 19, 1942, she was the second German woman to be awarded the Iron Cross 2nd Class. The 26-year-old sister was deployed in a rear section of the Central Eastern Front and was so badly wounded by shrapnel in a Soviet air raid that her leg had to be amputated. Before Elfriede Wnuk only Hanna Reitsch had received the EK II.
