Daugavpils cemetery-
According to the book I have received the cemetery was founded at the
end of the 18thC.It was liquidated in the Soviet Period but because
well known people were buried there many were reinterred in a
separate section of the municipal cemetery where local Jews are
buried today. Recently one more Jewish cemetery was discovered dating
from the 19thC. Presumably it was a Cholera cemetery located on the
Peninsula of Sunezers Lake opposite the Historical area that is
called the Vorstadt.

im interested in dvinsk
i believe the main Dvinsk cemetry was torned into a sportsfield and they
would not allow them to remove the bodies to another place as as they said
they would spread typhus
