In the old (destroyed) Claassenstrasse cemetery in Breslau, (now
Wroclaw, Poland) in use >from 1761 to 1856, there were gravestone
inscriptions written in German using Hebrew characters. The one that
comes to mind is that of my great great great grandmother Amalie
SILBERSTEIN geb. LEUBUSCHER (ca.1764 - 1835),

The fascinating discussion initiated by Eva Lawrence raises an
interesting related question to me: are all early grave markers written
in Hebrew characters in fact Hebrew text or are some actually in the
Yiddish or German language using Hebrew characters?
