4/21/2013 5:21 PM Here rests Genande daughter of Reb Moshe Kleinwald the yud dalet (dont know wht it means) from the city of Pressburg.

Died here in the airport(?) on her way home after her libertation from the Nazi camps - imach shmam ve zichram (erase their names and memory)...19...21 tishrei tav shin zain.

May she rest in peace...4 word accronym
4/23/2013 7:18 AM The letters Hey Yud Dalet stand for "HaShem Yikom Damo/Dama" -- May the Lord avenge his (her) blood. They are added after the names of people who died by violence - especially if they died because they were Jews, whether as passive soldiers, or in fighting enemies.

The tombstone notes that Margarete Kleinwald died in Erfurt (a town in Germany).

My impression is that the text says "after she was freed from the Nazi Hell (m'hagehenom hanazi)" without mentioning a camp, or camps specifically. It is a Hey, not a Khet, and a Gimel, not a Nun - compare the letter to other's on the stone
She died at the age of 19 - "bgil 19" (another Gimel, looking similar to a Nun, but once again, compare to the Nun in the last line).
