Stryzhavka

The small town of Stryzhavka is situated 8 km. away from Vinnytsia. This locality has been known since 1552, but it became notorious on the eve of the Second World War. Soviet power, preparing for war with the Nazis, built there a huge aerodrome intended for bombing Romanian oil fields. Political prisoners were working there under the supervision of NKVD; later thousands of them were killed. In autumn 1941, the Nazis began to build near the aerodrome, with the hands of Soviet prisoners of war, the headquarters for Adolf Hitler. The secret object acquired the name of “Werewolf”. When retreating the Germans blew up the structure leaving numerous secrets underground, which excites the imagination of adventurers even today.
