Re: Who buried the deceased after Liberation in the Netherlands #holocaust


My family lived in Holland before and after the war. My grandfather & father were lucky enough to escape to Switzerland during the war but my grandfather's unmarried sister was too scared to join them on their flight. She died March 1943 all on her own without any relatives. Her body was discovered by the police (I've found the police report on-line) but she is buried in the Jewish cemetery! Not only that, but a matzeva was actually put on her grave and it remained a mystery, something my late father often wondered about, as to who put it up.
