Hi Elke,

what is your question here? I am no specialist in this, so you should
verify my suggestions.

The ellipsoid Krasovsky is supported by grass (see file
etc/ellipse.table). This is the same as the old topographic maps from
DDR, projection Gauss-Krueger is the same as in germany. Central
meridian 11E is different from the system used by the german
gauss-krueger-system, which uses 6E, 9E, 12E and 15E (2, 3, 4, and 5) as
central meridians. But this should be no problem as far as you do not
need to import other data in your location. 

Use this values for your location: 
Projection: tmerc, Ellipsoid: krasovsky, Central Parallel 0N, Central
Meridian 11E, Scale Factor at Central Meridian: 1, False Easting 50 000,
Plural Form of units: meters.
