Tombs of prisoners of war and partisans dead in Belgium during the Second World War

Terug

Marchienne-au-Pont

The burial is located on the territory of the church cemetery in the village of Marchienne-au-Pont, 7 kilometers away from Charleroi, Hainaut province. Soviet prisoners of war who died in German captivity from hard labor in the mines of Charleroi in 1943, are buried there.

In the foreground there is a sloping granite pedestal, which reads in Russian and French: “To the Soviet soldiers who died in Marchienne-au-Pont during World War II. 1941–1944”. Between the two granite pedestals there is a monument of cubic shape with an applied plate, which reads in French: “Political prisoners, prisoners of war and municipal authorities do remember. 1945–1975”.

Dear visitors,

We would like to draw your attention to the fact that spelling of the names, surnames and places of birth of Soviet citizens buried in Belgium may be distorted due to the fact that they are quite often written only in Flemish and French in registration books and on monuments.

We thank the Brussels-Belgian Archdiocese of the Russian Orthodox Church, the organizations of Russian compatriots and Russian foreign institutions accredited in Belgium for providing photos and their efforts to preserve the memory of the heroism of the Soviet soldiers who fell in the Great Patriotic War.

The Embassy will be grateful for providing any information and photos of Soviet military graves of the Second World War in Belgium and the ceremonies held on them. Please send material to the email address of the Embassy amrusbel@skynet.be with the note «War Graves».
