BRILLIT, GERMANY

Brillit is a hamlet with a railway station. It is a train stop between Bremervörde and Osterholz. Brillit is the station closest to Stalag X B in Sandbostel. A paved way and a sandy road through the moors, the Klenkendorfer Mühlendammgraben, connect Brillit and the camp, even today. The transport that arrived on 18 April 1945 had 300 dead on board. They were provisionally buried near the railroad.
