Waehring Jewish Cemetery in 9th district of Vienna

The net edition of the Viennese daily "Der Standard" reports in todays
(July 8) net edition that staff and marines >from the American embassy in
Vienna have started to renovate the Jewish Cemetery, since the
authorities have not managed to do anything against the growing
vegetation there for decades. Plans for official action have been
delayed and delayed - until this voluntary action has started.

Pictures of this can be seen at the address (I do not know how long)

Several reports and a leader deploring the inactivity of the authorities
can read (in German) under

(go to "Panorama" and then to the articles *"Judischer Friedhof:
Entwicklungshilfe made in USA" and "Beschamend")*
