Walter Neitzsch has probably been transferred as an unknown soldier to the military cemetery Kiew -Sammelfriedhof . Unfortunately, during our re-interment activities, we were not able to recover all the fallen German soldiers from his original burial place and transfer them to the cemetery Kiew -Sammelfriedhof. It is, however, possible that Walter Neitzsch is one of the German soldiers whose remains have been recovered, but whom it has not been possible to identify, in spite of all our efforts.
