Trying to locate where my grandfather was buried in Gorzów is hard work as i just discovered the cemetery was levelled at some stage. He was buried there in 1946. Does anyone have any ideas, i would love to find old pics of it or its location on a map.

Dunno if this is the cemetery your grandfatehr is buried in, but a glimpse of Gorzów cemetery is provided at:,36844,4619053.html

This is apparently the scene on All Saints/All Souls Day (1-2 Nov.), when millions visit the final resting places of loved ones and Polish cemteries are ablaze with votive lamps. There is also an old Jewish cetmery in Gorzów.

I cannot see an overturned cemetary at Gorzów listed at the website link below, but you can get an idea of how other cemetaries that suffered a similar fate look nowadays. These listings are old ethnic German village cemetaries from before WWII.

I am interested in them as I am half ethnic German, and half Polish.

Maybe if i go to Poland next year I can find it myself. I think they built a park over it, better than office blocks i guess.

Thanks B, my grandfather died a couple of years after WW2 ended - he was in the navy but died a civilian after spending some time in a Gorzow hospital.
