also show the location of Breslau on the Oder River, south east of Berlin.

 

^ Note 2:

According to these maps Liegnitz, which is about 60 km west from Breslau, was conquered by the Soviet troops between the 1. Februar 1945 and 15. Februar 1945.

 

^ Note 3:

The map of 1. May 1945 shows a part of the Netherlands white, therefore not yet conquered area. At that time V-2 rockets where then still fired from there on England, therefore at a time after Dresden was bombed, 13-15.02.1945.

"The last V-2-related casualties in Britain occurred on March 27, 1945."

"The V-2 ... had the potential of flying a distance of 200 miles, and the launch pads were portable, making them impossible to detect before firing."

When Hildesheim was bombed on 22. March 1945, the firing of V-2 rockets was therefore still on-going.
