Desecrated graves in Vienna #austria-czech

Dear Friends -

A few months ago, I spent an afternoon at the Vienna Zentralfriedhof in an
(again) vain attempt to locate the stone
of my great-grandfather Moritz Nowak. I've done this at least a dozen times
over the past years and have yet to locate him.

I have the exact reference, obtained >from the IKG. In case it was wrong, I
spent several hours schlepping around the entire area of Tor 1. But he
simply can't be found.

I'm forced to the conclusion, as my late Mother also concluded, that the
grave was vandalised/desecrated during the Holocaust years and the site
re-used. So my questions are; how likely is it that this happened, and has
anyone else had a similar experience?

Shalom
