It was a place there (West of Myrmansk, by river Zapadnaya Litsa) where the Soviets have been able to keep the Germans on the border!
Even the border posts have been still in place.

I PMed Sven with the following message.
Hello Sven. You have correctly answered the skill-testing question in the WW 2 quiz, and you have won the dubious honour of asking the next one. If you don't, look out because someone will think of you and call you nasty names from behind their keyboard, and I will ask the next question in your place. As we in Military Quotes are sure that you would definitely want to avoid this nightmarish scenario, it would be to your great advantage to ask the next question. We're waaaating.......
It's a dirty job, but someone has to keep all youse guys in line!!!!

Answer is Exhibit USA 554 of War crimes trial, which was an order by Hitler, dated 13th May, 1941 signed by Keitel.
1. Until further notice the military courts and the courts martial will not be competent for crimes committed by enemy civilians.
2. Guerrillas should be disposed of ruthlessly by the military, whether they are fighting or in flight.
3. Likewise all other attacks by enemy civilians on the Armed Forces its members and employees, are to be suppressed at once by the military, using the most extreme methods, until the assailants are destroyed.
4. Where such measures have been neglected or were not at first possible, persons suspected of criminal action will be brought at once before an officer. This officer will decide whether they are to be shot.
On the orders of an officer with the powers of, at least, a Battalion Commander, collective drastic measures will be taken without delay against localities from which cunning or malicious attacks are made on the Armed Forces, if circumstances do not permit of a quick identification of individual offenders.
5. It is expressly forbidden to keep suspects in custody in order to hand them over to the courts after the reinstatement of civil courts.
6. The Commanders-in-Chief of the Army Groups may, by agreement with the competent Naval and Air Force Commanders, reintroduce military jurisdiction for civilians, in areas which are sufficiently pacified. For the area of the Political Administration this order will be given by the Chief of the Supreme Command of the Armed Forces.
II. Treatment of offence committed against inhabitants by members of the Wehrmacht and its employees.
1. With regard to offences committed against enemy civilians by members of the Wehrmacht and its employees, prosecution is not obligatory, even where the act is at the same time a military crime or offence.III. Responsibility of Military Commanders within their sphere of competence: Military Commanders are personally responsible for seeing that:
1. Every commissioned officer of the units under their command is instructed promptly and in the most emphatic manner on principles set out under (1) above."By order "Chief of the Supreme Command of the Armed Forces
