During WW2 the Barracks at Strasburg W.Pr was used by the German Forces. Today its home to a Polish Chem warfare unit (whose services were mobilised to help "Uncle Sam" in "Gulf war 2").

Does anyone have any history of the Brodnica / Strasburg military barracks before WW2?.

During the Poles War with Sweden, Brodnica was a militarised town(as many / most towns were in that region?).

Can anyone help with that obscure footnote to Polands military history?
Reason forinterest:- my father was in the Wehrmannschaft militia - and underwent training as a local recruit in WW2 Brodnica.

Stargard, this is fascinating and great information. I am interested in how this comes out. Have you posted this on the German language section?

I believe that a section dealing with the Polish langauge would be a more appropriate place? as Brodnica was part of 'Germany' [Gross Deutschland (3rd Reich) only from 1939 to 1944 ] - and prior to that it was part of Poland and Prussia. It is now part of Poland, again...............

But the people in that base at the time are going to be the source of knowlege. If not them, then perhaps their children. The Polish government might know of this if they did a study of it. Maybe even the Russians might know something using this same theory. Today, there are Poles researching some of the hidden history of WW2 but I really don't know if any has knowledge about this particular topic.

It was part of Germany from 1871 to 1919, and before the official unification Prussia was still 'German' and the leading member of the North German Confederation.

The Prussians of Strasburg/Brodnica respect Poland for than Germany. At least being part of the Polish system does not result in Prussian citizens being randomly rounded up and murdered in the streets of Brodnica - as happened the last time the Germans had control of that town.
