    for information from the net:In 1939 an ammunition factory was built in a wooded area north of Steyerberg. In the course of the war, more and more “foreign workers” and prisoners of war were deployed there. Permanent accommodation is available for German workers, while Soviet and other Eastern European workers are housed in a barrack camp with over 5500 places. For many people, the camps near Steyerberg became the last station of their lives. In cooperation with the Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorge, the victims were reburied in 1954, the present-day Deblinghausen-Hesterberg war cemetery was established. Around 2,400 dead lay at the facility, which was inaugurated in 1962. The identity of many can no longer be determined. In addition to the many victims from the Second World War, more than 50 Russian prisoners of war from the First World War rest in the rear part of the facility.Source: kriegsgraeberstaetten.volksbund.de
