ST. LOUIS (KPLR) - A unique burial with links to the Holocaust took place Sunday in St. Louis.

Officials with the St. Louis Holocaust Museum and Learning Center and Rabbi Yosef Landa from the Chabad of Greater St. Louis today conducted a proper Jewish burial service.

Soon after the Dachau concentration camp was liberated in 1945, William Elston who served in World War II brought remains from that camp back to St. Louis.

After his death, his daughter took the remains and gave them to the St. Louis Holocaust Museum and Learning Center.

Museum officials contacted Rabbi Landa and today that burial service took place.
