Here’s an unusual post for this week’s Weirdness Wednesday post: William E. Leuchtenberg grave – https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/235895931/william-leuchtenberg/. Stumbled across this grave while looking for someone else. He survived the Hindenburg disaster, but was badly burned. I found his grave and his wife and daughter’s grave in the same cemetery, trying to link them to each other. He was one of two Jews on the Hindenburg. The other Jew was Moritz Feibusch who died in the crash: https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/192101465/moritz-feibusch/ In an interesting twist, there was a Jewish doctor who helped the survivors, Dr. Adolph Towbin: https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/201882578/adolph-towbin. I usually post this first, but I saw where the last surviving Hindenburg survivor died in 2019 – https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/204739712/werner-gustav-doehner. Several of his family members died in the crash. I saw this yesterday and didn’t have a chance to update the post with the new information.
