Does anybody know where Vilva Viesvolod is?

This location is shown as the WW2 death location of my Uncle Francesco Mozina.

Thanks Laura,

I would never have found it. Scary stuff Labour Camps.
No wonder that my father had a dislike for Russians, I thought it was solely based on him being a POW (captured by the British) and being repatriated to Yugoslavia (he spoke Slovenian as well as Italian) post WW2.
