While visiting this past week, I walked with some local friends into the fields behind the village and was shown what appeared to be an extensive network of unreinforced trenches. In one area near the trench there was a circular cement structure less than 2 meters in diameter. It had a metal band around the circular opening in its center. It was said to be a machine gun emplacment. During a further walk in the same area, we came upon 2 conical mounds which were said to be bunkers covered over with dirt and vegetation.

I would be interested to learn whether these stories have a basis in fact. I was unable to find any information on line. I tried Feldgrau but could not find a way to register and post a topic.
