The Village of Thurow

The marker indicates the location of the old schoolhouse, where I lured one of the cows into the barn. This is also the building where my brother Juergen lowered me out of the window with bedsheets, in order to hide me from the drunken Russian soldiers.

The building to the left of the marker was the main Kroese house, with the farm buildings diagonally in front, which is where everyone slept after our first escape attempt. The pond that was in front of the house is no longer there.
