sein Grab derzeit noch an folgendem Ort: Vrbovec - Tschechische Republik

Der Volksbund ist bemüht, auf der Grundlage von Kriegsgräberabkommen die Gräber der deutschen Soldaten zu finden und ihnen auf Dauer gesicherte Ruhestätten zu geben. Wir hoffen, in nicht allzu ferner Zukunft auch das Grab von Kurt Knispel zu finden und die Gebeine auf einen Soldatenfriedhof überführen zu können.

Nachname: Knispel
Vorname: Kurt
Dienstgrad: Feldwebel
Geburtsdatum: 20.09.1921
Geburtsort: Salisfeld
Todes-/Vermisstendatum: 28.04.1945
Todes-/Vermisstenort: Raum Znaim


Is this the same Kurt Knispel ?

For me it's wrong and false. Kurt Knispel: He has never fought in Normandy july 1944, no 1, s.Pz.Abt. 503 (Tiger II Porsche). It's impossible, he stayed in Mally le Camps, with Tiger II in Jully / august 1944 for me.
And you ?

Hi

For me it's wrong, it's false, becuse Kurt remained on Mailly le Camps in August 1944. Maybe Tiger II n° 300 or 301. ??
I wrote more letters to Wunderlich , von Rosen, Koppe , Lochmann , Rubbel . He does not mention his name for Normandy.
Kurt did not fight in Normandy, neither Tiger I and Tiger II Porsche.
Tiger I n°300 in Normandy - Kommandant Sherf ( no Knispel )
Tiger II Porsche n°100 - Kommandant Oberfedlwebel Fendesack.
In Normandy sector Caen - Thurry Harcourt - Plessis Grimoult - Falaise // have not participated in the Normandy
-Willy Severin
-Alfred Rubell
-Kurt Knispel
For Wunderlich, and me, Kurt Knispel figth in Mailly le Camp, next august 1944 for Paris / Vexin with Tiger II Henschel.

Information about the exhumation of Kurt Knispel's remains and reburial. Includes photos of Id. tag, the actual shrapnel that killed him and "superprojection" of skull to photograph. The article is in Czech, but if anyone's interested, I can provide an abbreviated translation to English.
