My great-grandfather died in Guzar and although I have his death certificate (only because he died in a russian hospital) my mother tells me that he was thrown into a huge communal grave. As he was an old man and not in the army there is no memorial with his name on it - only some army personnel have that honour.My cousin went to Uzbekistan this summer and she told me that it was hard to find all the cemeteries as there were a great many small ones. Good luck in your search, I know how hard it is,Best wishes,Basia (UK)On 26 Nov 2011, at 00:41, Oliver Guerrero wrote:Sorry about the delay and thank you for your help.Would you happen to know if any other member would have any more information that would also be useful in getting closer to finding the right burial sight ?

Whilst I am in the process of researching the fate of my great grandfather I am also interested in identifying if there is a burial location for my great grandmother Maria Gwozdz who died in Uzbeckistan, having been released from Rzawki Posiolek. I read that there is a Polish cemetery in Uzbeckistan but I am unsure if any burial records were kept. Any advice or guidance on this from group members would be very welcome.
