Buderimm is a village in the German-speaking province of Saxony-Anhalt.
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the battle of Buderum.
In 1942, the village was captured by the British and taken as a POW camp.
The British and German armies fought in a bitter, protracted war.
In 1945, Buderamers surrender was a victory for the British, and German forces fled to Norway.
The Germans were eventually captured by Soviet forces and were imprisoned for the next few years.
Buderemans history has been documented by the Budeim Memorial and Budeimer Museum, which is housed in a former army barracks in the village.
The Budeemans former POWs are buried in the former barracks.
The village’s former inhabitants say the war is not forgotten.
They remember the war and the war survivors and how the war was fought.
“It was a war where we lost thousands of people,” said Gerd Buderiemer, who was the village mayor when Buderiemms liberation began.
The story of Budeimilas defeat and the subsequent return of the British is still a topic of discussion.
Budeiemer told CNN that the Buderimilas soldiers were “like a sheep” and that “they wanted to get back to their families and get a good job.
They had nothing to do.
He added that Budeilm is a reminder of how, in the years following World War Two, Germany and Britain used their vast power to destroy one another.”
The British and the Germans fought for us,” he said.
