I think the idea for those who can to play a role in preserving cemeteries is
valuable and worthwhile.
To start with we may consider using existing networks to establish if contacts
can be made with
members of the Libau Jewish community. Obviously there could be some help and
advice, on a professional basis I guess, >from Aleksanders Feigmanis.

Possibly this could be part of the initiatives of the Courland/Libau group set
up during our SIG
meeting in July.

1. Libau cemetery project

Hi All -
I have responded privately to Avi Lishower regarding my interest in saving
and restoring the cemetery in Libau/Liepaja.
I hope those of us whose family came >from Liepaja can create a plan for
implementing this project. I would be glad to help, but I don't have a clue
where or how to begin!
