Re: Locate grave in Germany after Holocaust #germany

The form with the Red Cross symbol on top gives Leibus's address as Feldafing -- a displaced persons camp that was located in Bavaria (Bayern), about 20 miles southwest of Munich. Google for much information about that camp. 

According to FindaGrave (üdischer-friedhof-feldafing), some of the people who died at the Feldafing DP camp were "buried in a small cemetery at Friedensweg, right next to the community cemetery. Actually the community donated a part of its cemetery property for this Jewish burial ground to be established. It is now is poor condition, with many markers toppled and impossible to read. There have been no further burials since 1953. It has seen 112 known burials...The cemetery is somewhat hidden. Once a visitor is standing in front of the gate of the community cemetery, turn left onto the parking lot behind the little chapel. There one will find a small gate that leads onto the Jewish burial ground."

Someone named Frank K. ( photographed several of the graves in that cemetery. I suggest that you write him and ask him if he would be able to check there for Leibus's grave.

Also, see this Facebook group: Families of Feldafing Displaced Persons Camp . Maybe someone there can help.

I found the following letter that my uncle send through the Red Cross. Maybe this might help locate the cemetery. He passed away not much after that.
