76848 Hofstätten

Contributed by Recs Jenkins, Dec 16, 2006, last edited Dec 21, 2006 [cemeteries@l-s-s.net]. Total records = 147.

Hofstätten is a small village in the middle of the Pfälzer Wald National Park in the German state of Rheinland-Pfalz and which is today incorporated in the municipality of Wigartswiesen. Hofstätten lies northwest of the small town of Annweiler am Trifels.

Hofstätten was established in the Middle Ages and up until 1970 had its own elementary school. Today Hofstätten has a population of about 150. The eldest of the graves in Hofstätten's cemetery dates from 1909. The cemetery is well maintained and in excellent condition.

The re-use of grave plots in Germany is very common. You or your family rent the plot for a period of 20 to 25 years (the time period varies from state to state). When this time period is up, church or civil authorities approach your family or next of kin concerning a rental renewal. If you have no next of kin, they can't be found or your relatives elect not to renew the rental, the plot is reallocated and re-used.

The inscription "Zum Gedenken" (In memory of) on gravestones indicates, in general, that the body of the individual in question is not actually buried in the grave. In the cases of soldiers, the body was either never recovered or it was buried somewhere near the place where he was killed.

On many gravestones, an "Eisernes Kreuz" (German Iron Cross) - with or without the date of death - is used to show that the individual was a soldier either killed in action (gef. = gefallen) or missing in action (verm. = vermisst).

Contains all visual burials from tombstone inscriptions, completed by myself and Andreas Driess on 16 December 2006. For further information, in German or English, please contact me at the above address.
