Feldafing was a displaced person's camp.
See
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feldafing_displaced_persons_camp
and

Pasing is a part of Munich.
See
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pasing

Buchberg looks like Buckeburg, described at
http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~community~-1754466
as a town in Germany "29 miles WSW of Hannover. Previously, capital of
principality of Schaumburg-Lippe. Today: in Landkreis Schaumburg,
Lower Saxony."
However, Wikipedia lists many other places named Buchberg, primarily
in Bavaria, but also lower Austria, Czech Republic, Switzerland, etc.,
so it could be any of them.
