In the superb documentary "The Komediant" on Pesachke Burstein and the
Burstein family - there is a moving scene of a visit to Mt. Hebron cemetery by
Lillian Lux and the family to see Pesachke's grave & the graves of other Yiddish
notables. Sadly, Lillian Lux has since passed, and I assume she is buried there
too. The movie is a 'must see' - and its website is 'thekomediant.com' .
Also, I purchased a CD of LIllian Lux which is a compilation of songs >from her
career; one of my favorites is her singing 'Jerusalem of Gold' in Yiddish. She
had the most beautiful voice.

Also, if you're taking the bus trip to Mt. Hebron Cemetery - you may want to
also visit the grave of the The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel
Schneerson. It's very moving, and even more so before the Jewish Holidays.
