Hungary SIG #Hungary Re: Budapest Cemeteries #hungary


Michael Fener
 

I heard some very alarming news yesterday >from my sister-in-law who lives
in Budapest. She said some of the cemeteries are being disturbed in order
to make room for the newly dead. She said her mother's gravesite was gone.
I was in Budapest over the summer and did not see any evidence of this.
What I did notice, at the Kozma street cemetary, was that there seemed to
be an ongoing restoration process. Most of the cemetary had been in ruins
since after WWII, but slowly the trees and brush were being cut back
section by section. Unfortunately, many stones were gone and had been
missing since the War. I saw nothing that indicated new burials were taking
place on sites of previous ones.

Hope that helps.
