Thea Lahn, who speaks English, and her deceased boyfriend erected a monument in Grafenek where 10,000 handicapped individuals were gassed. Her group of people seems to have gone out of their way to find and preserve history of Jews of Buttenhausen. Few Christians showed up for dedication of the monument several years ago.
