Eyewitness account of the German-Brazilian woman Leonora Geier.
On the morning of February 16 (1945), a Russian department occupied the RAD camp Vilmsee at Neustettin. The Commissar, in good German, meant that the camp was dissolved and that we, as a uniformed unit, were immediately transported to a collective camp. As a Brazilian, I was a member of an allied Allied nation, so he took care of the transport that went to Neustettin in the yard of a former iron foundry. We were about 500 maiden of the female RAD. The commissioner treated us very politely and assigned us the foreign workers’ barracks of the plant. However, the designated space was too narrow for everyone, which is why I made representations to the Commissioner. He said that it was only temporary, and that I could come to the office if it was too tight for me, which I gladly accepted.Immediately, he meant to stop contacting the others because they were members of an illegal army. My conclusion that this was not the case, he cut off with the remark that I would be shot if I repeat something similar in some form.
I suddenly heard a loud scream and two Red Army soldiers brought in five girls. The commissioner ordered them to take off their clothes. When they resisted shame, he told me to do it and follow them.We walked across the yard to the former factory kitchen, which had been completely cleared, except for a few tables on the side of the window. It was terribly cold and the regretful trembled. In the large, tiled room some Russians were waiting for us, apparently making very obscene remarks; because every word was answered with a loud laugh. The commissar meant to see how men made mischiefs. Now two Poles came in, wearing only a pair of trousers, at whose sight the girls cried out. They quickly grabbed the first and bent their backs over the edge of the table until their joints cracked. I almost fainted when one pulled the knife and cut her right breast in front of the other. Then he paused for a moment and cut off the other side. I’ve never heard a man scream so desperately as this girl. After this operation, he stabbed the knife several times in the abdomen, which in turn was accompanied by the jeers of the Russians.
The next one cried for mercy, but in vain, because she was especially pretty, I had the impression that one did the gruesome work very slowly. The other three had collapsed, shouting for their mother and begging for a quick death, but she, too, suffered fate. The last one was half a child with a barely developed breast, literally tearing the flesh from the ribs until the white bone appeared.
Again, five girls were brought in, this time they had met a selection, all well-developed and pretty. When they saw the bodies of their predecessors, they began to cry and scream. With weak strength, they desperately tried to defend themselves. But it did not help them, the Poles were always cruel. One of them cut their bodies lengthwise and poured a can of machine oil into them, which they tried to ignite.The other shot a Russian into the genitalia before cutting off her breasts.
A great hoot began when a saw was brought out of a tool box. Now they tore the breasts of the other girls with it, which in a short time made the ground float in blood. A bloodlust seized the Russians.Running girls were brought.
As in a red mist, I saw the terrible happenings, again and again I heard the inhuman outcry at the martyr of the breasts and the loud moaning at Mutilating the pubic parts. When my knees failed, I was forced into a chair, the inspector always made sure that I looked, yes, when I had to vomit, they even stopped at the torture. A girl had not completely undressed; she might be a little older than the rest of her, seventeen years old. Her brassiere was soaked in oil and this was lit, and while she cried out, she shoved a thin iron rod into her vagina until it emerged from the navel.
In the yard whole groups of girls were liquidated with truncheons, after the prettiest ones had been singled out for this mourning room. The air was filled with the death scream of many hundreds of girls.But given what was going on here, the manslaughter outside was downright humane. It was a terrible fact that none of the mutilated girls lost consciousness. Each suffered the mutilation with full consciousness. In horror everyone was equal in their utterances, always the same, begging for mercy, the high-pitched scream of cutting the breast, and the groaning of hurting the genitals. Several times the killings were interrupted to expel the blood and remove the corpses.
In the evening I fell into a strong nerve fever. From then on I have no memory until the time I woke up in a military hospital. German troops had temporarily recaptured Neustettin and thus freed us. As I learned later, in the three days of the first Russian occupation, about 2000 girls were murdered who were in the vicinity of RAD, BDM and other camps.
Mrs. Leonora Geier, b. Cavoa. “
The reports of the German-Brazilian citizen Leonore Geier, b. Cavoa, b. on 22. 10. 1925, as a witness were also by Bernhard Aquarius and Manfred Haer, members of the infantry gun and training Comp. IG 81 confirms that they were subsequently entrusted with the salvaging work in the camps, when, after a temporary withdrawal of the 1st Belarussian army, the German Wehrmacht had freed Neustettin after a counter-attack.
The witness was at that time as a writing help in the camp “Vilmsee” of the female labor service operates. As a Brazilian, she was in front of the Russian army as an ally in the forced operation of the Nazi state. The presentation of these privileges shows a document, which was present and bears the stamp of the Belarussian army. The report was written on October 6, 1956 and reflects the events of February 16, 17, and 18, 1945.

Mr. Architect Dipl.-Ing. Erwin Groke.Witzendorffstraße 31, 21339 Lüneburg, sends in the report of a lady, Mrs. Leonora Geier geb. Cavoa, so far alone from the headlight, ODAL-Druck u. Publisher E. Hefendehl, 96476 Rodach-Sülzfeld, No.11,15. November 1994. The mentioned sponsoring community of Neustettin, municipality Gellersen, and Dr. med. Edgar Jahn, CDU member from Neustettin, had not answered.- “We hesitate”, especially in a Christmas number, to print this terrible event so unprotected.By the slightest pressure, we spread a veil of emotion inhibiting it over it. Mr. Groke urges that readers report who had relatives in the RAD camp described below. Mrs Geier would like to contact these readers.

More recent hints I found now in the Silesian year 1995. With the massacre has been more closely studied: Dipl Ing Ingin Groke, Witzendorffstraße 31, 21399 Lüneburg (see “The Silesian” No. 10 of March 10, 1995). “The Silesian” then went to several interesting testimonies:
A then 24 -year-old tank driver was assembled in the first half of February 1945 in Cottbus with other crews to a replacement department and then relocated to Frankfurt / Oder. On February 15, about 20 tank crews were equipped with infantry weapons and initially set to truck and then march in the direction of Neustettin in march. They were to take over tanks set up in a forest west of Neustettin and counterattack east with them. The witness’s train attacked a suburb of Neustettin, which also had a train station.
“After settling some PAHs, the Russians surrendered. About 200 came out of the houses and settled on the forecourt of the station (Editor Saarlänner: Did I have slight doubts – maybe they had shot themselves?) Then something unexpected happened. Some German women ran towards the Russians and stabbed the Russians with knives and forks. The prisoners were our wards, we were not allowed to let that happen. It was only when I blew up an MP sheaf in front of the women that they backed away, cursing us for protecting those beasts as well.
They asked us to come into the houses and look at the bestialities. We did it bit by bit and were totally shaken, we had never experienced anything like that – incredibly outrageous. In many rooms were exposed dead women. They had swastikas carved into their abdomen, their guts partially swelling, their breasts cut, their faces smashed and swollen. Others were tied to furniture with hands and feet and massacred. From the scabbard stuck out a broomstick, in another a brush, etc. For me as a young man of 24 years, a shocking sight, unbelievable.
Then the women reported: The mothers had to experience how their ten- and twelve-year-old daughters of about 20 types were raped and the daughters experience the rape of mothers – even the grandmothers. Women who resisted were brutally tortured to death. There was no mercy!
Many women were not out of town; they had fled from other places before the Russians – here. They also reported on the fate of the RAD maidens whose camp huts were occupied by the Russians. When the massacre of the Maiden began, some could crawl under the barracks. They were able to escape at night and told us.
There were three of these Maiden. The women and girls saw and partly experienced what Mrs. L. Geier describes. The women we liberated were in a barely describable condition. They were tired, with a confused, staring expression. Some were not approachable …
After seeing and experiencing the consequences of these inhumane bestialities, we were tremendously motivated.
We knew that the war was no longer possible; but it was an obligation to us to fight to the last cartridge. “So far a soldier as a witness. This report allows two conclusions:
1. In February 1945, the German Wehrmacht still observed the rules of martial law, although in the face of the experiences of many soldiers on the eastern front in East Prussia, Pomerania and Silesia to superhuman powers were required.
2. The report by Mrs. L. Geier from Neustettin directly and the tanker from the area of Neustettin make it clear that it is not a matter of isolated cases, but “nationwide” atrocities. (“The Silesian” of March 10, 1995) Source: http://www.nexusboard.net/showthread…hreadid=283300
I still have the 1995 edition myself. Another unimaginable mass crime against innocent Germans, about which today the mantle of silence is to be shrouded. The Poles will hardly look after the mass graves of German women.
