I'm writting an article about the German battle-group "ZIEB".
In a German source I have read that the newly formed Russian Danube Flottila made some landings in the back of the German troops at the rivers of DNJESTR and LIMAN.

QUOTE
24. August 1944:
Zunächst hat die aus rund 600 Kleinfahrzeugen zusammengesetzte, neu aufgestellte »sowjetische Donauflottille« eine Landung im Rücken der deutschen Truppen am DNJESTR bzw. LIMAN unternommen und landet am 24. August 1944 bei SCHEBRIANI in der Donaumündung.



BUT the Russian Danube Flottila did also a landing at the Danube Mouth/Delta at SCHEBRIANI on 24th August 1944.

On my maps I can't find the village/town of SCHEBRIANI.
SCHEBRIANI could be German language, what's the name in Romanian language??

Actually, there is no river "Liman". The Soviets may have landed behind German troops defending Dniester's (Nistru's) Liman, situated in Basarabia, and débouché on the Black Sea, having Cetatea Alba (Akkerman) as chief city in the region... Liman means in Romanian a kind of gulf.

Sorry, never heard of a village with that name... I don't thing it is in German.

Best regards,

Could it be JIBRIENI (transcribed in English as Zhee-bryeny)?

@Getu':

You are right in the original source its written DNJESTR-LIMAN, I mistook it for DNJESTR and LIMAN.
(Aha, gulf or bay of the river DNJESTR.)
THANKS!!!



@Dénes:

JIBRIENI sounds perfect for SCHEBRIANI!!

Do you have any infos about a Russian landing there?? (24th August 1944)

I have found JIBRIENI, it's now part of the Ukraine.
I hope the following map is working.
