Bolstern is a small village of less than 500 inhabitants in the State of Baden-Württemberg .

The village is located approximately five kilometers southwest of Bad Saulgau and is surrounded by woods, at the beginning of Fulgenstadter valley.

As a private initiative, a memorial has been erected there to remember the crew of Lancaster ND474 and to record the part played by the people in Bolstern who buried them and tended their graves.
