The hiding place of the German 77th Reserve Division – a bunker for soldiers to rest

The hideout, which was behind a hill, in a forest ditch, in the immediate vicinity of the first defence line, where soldiers could warm up, dry off, eat or take a nap. There were not only trenches and trenches for shooters in the first defensive positions, but also auxiliary buildings that provided temporary rest, shelter from bad weather and the hideout from explosions of shrapnel and shrapnel shells. There were sheds for telephone operators, dressing rooms, command posts and observation posts for officers. The dugouts had electric lighting, sleeping places, a floor covering, and plastered walls. Telephone lines ran from underground command posts to artillery batteries. GPS: 55.766045, 26.355847
