Man from Graz recieved the Ritterkreuz (Knights´Cross)

 

The Führer invested Oberleutnant Gerhard Leibnitz, airman and observer of a short-distance-reconnaisance-group from Diemlach near to Bruck,

born on 16th August 1919 as a son of the engineer and Ortsgruppenleiter Edgar Leibnitz, with the Knight´s Cross of the Iron Cross.

He (Leibnitz) visited the Oberrealschule (kind of a higher school) in Bruck and was a member in the Hitler-youth.

In the beginning of the war Leibnitz fought in the Poland-Campaign as an artillerist, came to the airforce and was involved in the Eastern campaign

from the beginnung on.

He recieved the iron Cross 1st and 2nd Class, the German Cross in Gold and the Golden Front clasp for his bravery.
