Hello Artur,
Thank you for the information. I am bringing my father to Gliwice-Sosnica in May to visit the site of the camp. Do you know if we will be allowed to visit or is the grassland still part of the coal mine? Another poster tells me that there is a museum (Guido?) there now, but I do not know if that is on the site of the Oehringen Bergbau A.G. Schachtanlage Sosnitza mine. Any information you can give me would be welcome. I have written to the Deputy Mayor of Gliwice but have not had a reply.
Kind Regards, Ian Bowley
