Story go's as follows since i can't post links...... Its nice to see a True tank Ace will be given a proper grave to rest in peace.

Vrbovec (Znojmo) - Archaeologists have found the remains of the greatest tank aces of World War Kurt Knispel. After a long search on the various war cemeteries is directed to a number of factors Vrbovce in Hodonínsko. The bodies of the soldiers picked up and confirmed that one of them is just Knispel - by Vlastimil Schildberger from the Moravian Museum conscripts, who can not be regarded as a great supporter of Nazism, and a native of the Golden Mountains Salisova in Jeseniky.

lready last year, the researchers found exactly where the remains are located. Now the body exhumed and found out who it belonged to - identify and Knispelovo. Because vrboveckém soldiers died in the hospital, were buried only in cotton shirts with a minimum of personal belongings. However, they were not missing identification tags that soldiers wore around his neck. "Finding Knispelova body is really successful because they did not know until the last moment, if in the grave is and if so, whether it will be possible to identify his remains," said Eva Pánková from Moravian Museum. Bodies identified soldiers will then be re-imposed in the country at the Brno Military Cemetery in the German section.
Kurt Knispel during the Second World War he served first as a charger, but soon as the shooter and destroyed 168 enemy tanks. Most victories on the Eastern Front, but also fought against the Western allies - such as Normandy and the Ardennes. End of the war, however, did not live. "He fell in our area, 28 April (1945) was seriously wounded in the fighting at either Vlasatice, or Nova Ves, where he reportedly suffered a shot through the stomach - when the tank was damaged by his colleagues Skoda and tried to extricate the tank," said Vlastimil Schildberger of the Moravian Museum. Twenty-three trooper also called the Black Baron died the next day in a field hospital.

Archaeologists have long yearned Knispelovy remains to find, but still groping. "It was controversial, it is believed to be buried in Pohorelice in Miroslav ..." said Vlastimil Schildberger . But in the end proved to be the right place South Moravian Vrbovec. A representative of the Moravian Museum here brought records that archaeologists have obtained from Kassel Society for the care of war graves. "According to their records should be buried in the local community," explained archaeologist, how he got on the track of the real Knispelovu grave.
