Hello to all
; something about it............................
The bridge by Jakschizy (on the Beresina) 1941.
Otto Weidinger: "... about 2 km before Jakschizy we regrouped, the assault guns "Seydlitz" with Ostuf. Günster, "Lützow" with Ostuf. Telkamp and "York" with Uscha Klaffke, followed by a Kradschützengruppe (motorcyclists) reached the town at 17:10 hours. Strong unorganized parts of the Russians flee on the intact wooden bridge, about 150 meters long, on the Beresina ... Then Ostuf. Telkamp with the "Lützow" stormed ahead... and reaches the bridge." Steadily firing on this column, the assault gun moves towards the long wooden bridge, at the same moment as it blown through the air: the assault gun plunges into the depths but is trapped under the bridge. The Russians have blasted two bridge pillars with a remote control. Despite the heavy burns on the face, Ostuf. Telkamp manages to get out of the vehicle and help the other men. The SS Sturmmann Nachbauer is injured and the SS Sturmmann Haucke has a concussion for the fall.... "
