The tour of Muna Lubbertsedt was over and we were taken to Lubberstedt

cemetery .

Lubberstdt cemetery

In Lubberstedt cemetery we visited the communal grave of 4 of the

Jewish female prisoners who died in Lubberstedt . They are buried

together with 8 Russian Prisoners of War. Originally these 12 bodies

were in separate, unmarked graves but in 1989 the Axstedt local

authorities moved them to the current communal grave and marked

it with a Memorial stone. In 1997 the Lubberstedt voluntary group

added 2 headstones, listing the names of the deceased prisoners.

As we stood around this gravesite, Erdwig Kramer said a

heartfelt prayer:

At the end of August 1944, 500 Jewish women who came from

Auschwitz were discharged from cattle cars at Lübberstedt railway
