Leipzig- Luftwaffe Base in Romania?

In some sites about the presence Luftwaffe in Romania during of the WW2, I found two locations with names which there aren’t among actual toponims from Romania.

I refer to LEIPZIG and MORIZ (the first it’s specified even “Leipzig/Romania” in these sites))

Can anybody help me to localize these bases on Romanian map (neighbourhood, or geographical coordinates, or others auxilliary information)?

Many thanks for answers!
DAN

Leipzig airfield was in Bessarabia, back then part of Rumania.

I haven't heard of Moriz airfield.

Re: Leipzig- Luftwaffe Base in Romania?

I had a chance to investigae the matter in more details on the week end.

Here is the location of Leipzig, as given in contemporary documents:
NO de Dorfes, 70 km W Akkerman (in Rumanian Cetatea Alba, in Russian Byelgorod), in central Bessarabia.

The closest that comes to Moriz is Manzâr, which is not far away from Leipzig.

If you have my book on the Rumanian Air Force, titled 'The Prime Decade', published by Squadron/Signal, there is a b/w map on the inside cover, which shows both airfields.

My site refers to these airfields and I have Denes's book but it hadn't occurred to me that Leipzig was other than the German city and so I hadn't checked his map. TOCH is so educational!

The name "Leipzig" was changed after 1945. Now the name is "Bessarabka" in Romania.


Sincerely yours
