Thank you for your in-depth explanation...much appreciated.
Also, while in Munich, find out if Otto Reinwald (brother) and Else Reinwald (sister) could also be buried in the same cemetery as Grete. From known records, Otto died in Munich.
I will be looking forward to your reply...

Concerning the Waldfriedhof München cemetery in Munich:
This cemetery is NOT just "a war cemetery for casualties of WWI and WWII only." There are 977 listed for this cemetery and 14 of them are listed as "famous". The include authors, a scientist, composer, actors/directors, as well as a few military. There is also a singer, Rob Pilatus, one of the members of the group Milli Vanilli, who died as the result of a drug overdose at the age of 32.
As is the case with many cemeteries, not all persons who are buried in any particular cemetery are listed on Find A Grave.
According to Frank K., #46941322, there are over 50 cemeteries in Munich. As Malvina was an actress, she did a few wartime propaganda films for Hitler. Perhaps her gravesite has been defaced or moved/removed. Perhaps the spelling of her name or that of her husband is different. Perhaps it will take a German or family member to locate her resting place.

I'll make the edits when I get on my tablet. I have to do things right away or I "lose" info, so I created the memorials. If these are family members of yours and you'd like to manage the memorials yourself, please use the request feature to ask me for them and I will happily transfer them. Or I can continue to simply make edits you send with a note that you provided the edits.

Just wanted to thank you for taking the time to add Cyrillic names to FG and transliterate them properly. I also do Cyrillic name transliteration and have been quite disappointed to see some of these names entered as "unknown" or (even worse) using unreadable alphabet salad. Your efforts are much appreciated. Dyakuyu! - Spud

|Keith Andrews||Photos of James Andrews|
I would just like to say a massive thank you to you for the pictures you took of my uncles grave in Hanover Cemetery.
The photographs are very special to my father (James's Brother) and were a great surprise to him. He was also very moved that someone like yourself would take the time to do this for us.
I hope in a way I can repay your kindness by helping
someone else in their search of a loved one.
Thank You once again

|Lutetia||Friederike and Johann Franz von Wendt|
I was actually surprised who Friederikes mother was, and who her daughter was. It would be interesting to find out where those two are buried.
A note on the two memorials. They aren't cenotaphs they are actually buried there.

I am very happy you are getting those photos. Interesting thing with that "bone chamber". Last time I was on Helgoland was in the mid 1980's, waaaaaaayyyyyy before my interest in cemeteries.

Hope you enjoyed your trip to the "Lange Anna". Thanks for those excellent photos you took and placed.

Many thanks for adding the photographs for the memorials in the Waldfriedhof Krieger-Ehrenhain. I have accepted the changes you requested to the dates and name spellings. There were some genuine transcription errors on my behalf but there are also some real discrepancies between the details given on the gravestone and those recorded on memorial cards and in official casualty lists. However, minor differences between the details in different sources are not that all uncommon for servicemen.

Thank you so much for the photo. It means a lot to me that you went out if your way to get it.

Have been doing some family history and found out I'm related to Hans Simon Braun. Trying to find any family on him. He died at Dachau in January 1941. He was born in January 1904. It was said that he was a photographer. I live in the U.S. so getting info is hard.

I am sorry you did not like the balloons. I did try to remove them, but the link you had in your post did not work properly. I finally found the memorial again by searching her name and found that the balloons had already been removed.

I'm trying to locate a relative over there and hopefully view her memorial page. Someone I know here in the U.S. had been to her grave last year but he didn't have a camera with him and never took a photo, so I know there's a grave and marker. If you know anyone close to that cemetery could you see if they would take the photo? Thank you very much and thank you for all you do for F.A.G. Al Holter

Thank you for the photos of their gravestones. Your time and efforts and talents are very much appreciated.
Those stones are beautiful. Ironic interruption of that one "reed".

Thanks for pointing out that the maiden name was on the marker. I had overlooked it. I always give my sources for anything I add that is not on the grave marker (for various reasons).
