Kovno cemetery #lithuania

Does anybody know what state the cemetery "on the hill" is in? My last
and only visit was in 1979. The country was still under Soviet rule. At
that time I snuck in illegally, as the whole city of Kaunas was off
limits to foreigners. The cemetery was in a total state of neglect, with
many tombstones overturned (included my maternal grandmother's). I
forget the name of the cemetery. It is surrounded by a high cement wall.
I believe it is referred to the one "af'n grinen barg".
