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

Try the Margraten Cemetery near Maastricht, the Netherlands, where G I s were buried. The  Dutch were so grateful to have been liberated by Americans, that each gravestone has been adopted by a Dutch family. They visit annually and care for the site. When I mentioned that there were so few Stars of David among the crosses, I was told the Jewish families had their relatives exhumed and reburied in consecrated ground. However, their names are honored in the on-site memorial.
