Hungary SIG #Hungary RE: Osztrogoszk #hungary
Thanks to a couple of messages, I think we have figured out that Osztrogoszktoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
is Ostrogojsk or Ostrogorsk, in Russia, near the city of Voronezh. According
to The World Almanac of World War II: 12 January 1943, The Soviet Voronezh
Front... attack the Hungarian Second Army...The Hungarian defenses are
quickly shattered. On 19 January 1943, in the rear a pocket of Hungarian
troops are driven >from Ostrogozhsk. Since the last record of my wife's'
cousin was 16 Jan 1943, this seems to fit. Thanks for the help.

I found a record for one of my relatives, who was last recorded in a
Hungarian Labour Battalion in 1943 at Osztrogoszk. I can't find this
location on a map. Does anyone know where it is and what it is called now?
