I believe that small marker for Fritz Todt in the Invalidenfriedhof, Berlin, has been removed ... can anyone confirm this? I know the last time I was in Berlin (2006), the marker was not there, and this was after this photo was initially posted on the internet. I was told that the family removed the marker due to some controversy.

Has anyone been there recently, and seen that marker there?

Not exactly the tomb but...

The Bendlerblock is a building in Berlin, located on the Stauffenbergsstraße (originally named the Bendlerstraße), south of the Tiergarten. The building was erected between 1911 and 1914 for the Imperial German Navy Offices. During the Weimar Republic it additionally served as the seat of the Reichswehr Command. Today, the building complex serves as secondary office of the German Federal Ministry of Defense, and is a major memorial place for the July 20 assassination plot against Adolf Hitler...

The Stauffenbergstraße was originally named the Bendlerstraße from 1837 until July 20, 1955, the year that the West German Army, the Bundeswehr was established and organized. The Bendlerstraße bore the name of Johann Christoph Bendler (1789-1873), the Chief Mason and a member of the Berlin city council, hence the name Bendlerblock...

Under the leadership of the Infantry General Friedrich Olbricht, the Bendlerblock was the focus of military resistance to the Nazi regime. It was here that Olbricht developed the "Valkyrie" operation plan into a plan for a coup d'état against Hitler. In October 1943 Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg was transferred to the General Army Office as Chief of Staff. His position gave him direct access to situation briefings in Hitler's eastern headquarters, the "Wolf's Lair in East Prussia." On July 20, 1944 he set the fuse of a bomb there and returned to Berlin...

The bomb went off, but Hitler survived. When news of Hitler's survival spread, the conspirators were unable to take control of Germany. Following the arrest of the conspirators in the Bendlerblock, General Olbricht, Colonel von Stauffenberg, Werner von Haeften, and Albrecht Ritter Mertz von Quirnheim, all members of the uprising, were executed by firing squad that same night in the courtyard of the building. A fifth plotter, Generaloberst Ludwig Beck, was allowed to shoot himself...

During the Battle of Berlin in late April early May 1945, General Helmuth Weidling, commander of the Berlin Defense Area, used the Bendlerblock as his headquarters before he surrendered to the Soviets at 06:00 hours on May 2...

The section of the Bendlerblock around the courtyard where Stauffenberg and the other conspirators were executed now houses the Memorial to the German Resistance. It is also used as one of the ceremonial sites where new members of the Wachbataillon of the Bundeswehr (German military's drill unit) take their oaths...

The Ministry tends to restrict access to the Bendlerblock due to its historical significance and lingering sensitivities about Germany's role in World War II. Filming permission was granted to a movie studio in 2003, but the Ministry of Defence was displeased with the result. The Ministry hesitated to grant permission for scenes of the Tom Cruise-led movie, Valkyrie, about the July 20 Plot, to be filmed there. However, permission was eventually granted, and filming was allowed. (The movie was primarily photographed in and around Berlin, with some African and other scenes filmed in California.) Director Bryan Singer led the film crew in a minute of silence before filming began in honour of those who were executed on the site in 1944...

I think I read recently that, in accordance with Germanic custom, Sepp Dietrich's grave has recently be re-used for someone else, and this grave marker is no longer there. Can anyone confirm?
