The end of the 2nd World War in Weyer

On May 8th 1945 the 2nd World War ends in Europe. The German armygroup south-East surrenderd at Wiadhoven and der Ybbs. An ss-unit, responsable for killing 100 of their own soldiers and several local citisens was to command and arrange this, but fled to the west acoross the river Enns. The soldiers of the fleeing South-East army threw there weapons and vehicles in the river near Weyer to try to cross the river while fleeing from Russian imprisonment.

Today there is a museum with finds from this huge pile of army debry. Most was cleaned away over the decades, but from the top picture, where a softskinned sWS is seem passing through Weyer, there is a big chance there was one in the huge pile of vehicles.
