The Find A Grave site is a big hit for finding graves and viewing photos of grave stones worldwide. My goal here is to provide links to photographed cemeteries in Russia and Ukraine and war cemeteries for Russians and Ukrainians in Europe and links to websites with databases of Russian and Ukrainian cemeteries.
Please post your suggestions for links below. I will add links to photographed cemeteries or databases of cemeteries for Russians and Ukrainians in the USA, England, Australia and other European countries.
1. Russian graves in Germany– A list of Russian soldiers of WWII buried in Bochum, Bottrop, Emdem, Greffen, Hamm, Muelheim, Oberhausen and Siegburg. Names are listed in Russian by alphabetical order. Some are only listed by name, others have birth dates and death dates. Here’s the website translated into English.
3. War graves in Norway– Soviet citizens’ graves can be searched in English and Russian for WWII.
