    The Cross of the German East is a waypoint with history: this memorial is intended to commemorate the Germans who had to leave their homeland during and after the Second World War. It is one of many "Ostlandkreuz" in Germany that were set up by associations of expellees.

    The Harz Cross of the German East was northeast and slightly below the summit of about 2 km southeast of Bad Harzburg (Goslar, Lower Saxony) located Uhlenköpfe (555.4 m above sea level) on the Uhlenklippe on June 24, 1950 in the presence of Ernst Reuter inaugurated. The 20.5-meter-high wooden cross crashed, now ailing, on 4 March 1998 in a hurricane. On 30 September 2000, a new, 17.7 m high and 6.3 m wide steel cross, which is partially covered with wood, inaugurated. The construction costs amounted to 180,000 DM. The cross is included as No. 122 in the system of the postmarks of the Harzer hiking aristocracy; the stamp box hangs on a refuge near the cross. 🤗

    An important place to commemorate the millions of innocent Germans who lost their homes in the eastern part of the country through displacement. But despite the sad occasion of this place, you should not forget the HWN stamp 122.

    Before the bark beetle attacked the spruce trees, it looked really idyllic there

    Here you can also find the stamp office 122 of the HWN. The First Cross was erected in 1950. Unfortunately it was destroyed by a storm in 1998. Today's Cross was built in 2000, weighs 6 tons and is about 18 meters high. It is also worth the little way to go around the cross. Here are the stones of the old lands.

    Impressive memorial cross to the former German eastern territories. It is especially popular with children for climbing. This is also where the stamping point 122 of the Harz hiking pin is located.

    There are several crosses of the German East in Germany, Wikipedia names five and refers to hundreds, mountains and cemeteries:

    In the shelter, the stamp box HWN 122 is housed, and thus one has, especially in bad weather, "all the time in the world" pick the right stamp field.

    The Cross of the German East is a displaced memorial and is since 2000 (again) at the Uhlenklippen in Bad Harzburg.
