The Russians’ war on Texel

Destructions on Texel after combats between georgian and german troops. Damaged lighthouse of De Cocksdorp (Texel)

Texel was the site of the Russians’ War during WWII: an uprising by Georgian soldiers of the Wehrmacht against the Germans. These Georgians became part of the Wehrmacht as prisoners of war against their will and stationed in the Netherlands.


The site provides a clear overview of the historical events on the island that eventually became known as the Russ War in which a total of over 1,000 people died. The sites features short videos of witnesses, maps and a description of daily events. The Georgian uprising is relatively unknown outside Texel, which is partly why Nemo has also created a website about the events on Texel.
