My mother, Marianne Stensland (18.05.23) from Stavanger, Norway applied to be a DRK nurse at her ortskommendatur i Stavanger, Norway in autumn 1943. She was accepted, and in February 1944 travelled together with 28 others from Oslo to Munchen for a 3 months course at a clinic there. Dr. Riefler in Prinz Ludwig Strasse 7. There is a registration dated 1946 that places her in Oberhacing in march 1944. After Munchen she served in Krachau before being sent to Sterzing/Vipeteno in winter 44. In Sterzing she probably served with units SS-Nachrichten-Ausbildungs- und Ersatz-Abteilung 5 and/or Technische Bataillon 10, 1. kompani E. (FPN 41652) until surrendering to Italian partisans on the 1st of May 1945. The next thing we know is that she was sent from Displaced person camp to DP camp through Europe until she borded a norwegian ship The "Haakon 7." from Le Havre in late september 45 and came to Kristiansand, Norway on the 4th of October 45. There she was apprehended, and later sentenced to one year in prison for treason in september 46.
My mother never told her sons about her service as DRK-Krankenschwester. It first came to light after her death in november 2018. As a storyteller I am working on a story about her and her time. I am very grateful for any information about Marianne Stensland, the places she served, units she served with, DP-Camps, anything that may have the slightest connection with this story. Please to respond in german. I can read and understand german, but sadly my writing is not as good as it ought to be. Many thanks and best wishes to all in these strange times.
