Re: SITE CITE - [Partial] list of Jewish cemeteries in Germany #germany

Yvonne:

Thanks for the link. Each page is mainly a republication of the German
Wikipedia article for the town where a cemetery is located. I doubt they
update the pages very often either.

Moreover, you have to know to look in the references to find the *real*
page for most of those cemeteries, i.e.,
http://www.alemannia-judaica.de/juedische_friedhoefe.htm, assuming the
Wiki article references it at all. Dr Hahn, who runs that site, keeps it
up-to-date and is always glad to receive more information.

Mind you, there's nothing wrong with doing what this site is doing,
because Wikipedia explicitly grants everyone the right to copy their
information. But it's not very helpful.
