Another place in the Ukraine to identify

Hi all,




I can read sudöstwärts ????, bei Berditschow.

I have tried to decypher this name but although it's not written in Sütterlin, I can't seem to read it. It looks like it's something like Leleniwa, Seleniwa, Beleniwa or Jeleniwa but when googling these names I came up empty handed.

Berditschew was the place that was attacked by this unit so it might be close to this city, then again it might be 100 km away.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Have a look at this map for the vicinity of Berditschew - http://maps.mapywig.org/m/German_map...II.1943_UW.jpg

Rudi,

No problem.

As is usual in these cases Berditschew is near the edge...so potentially you have several maps to look over.

Assuming that you don't have this already, here is the link to the index of all of those maps - http://igrek.amzp.pl/mapindex.php?cat=ME300

Hi Andy,

Thanks but as long I don't know what the name of the place is, it's like looking for a needle in a haystack.
