Re: a question on Jewish Cemetery of Worms #germany


They are also cemeteries facing north! (Strasbourg Cronenbourg and Koenigshoffen,) I do not remember why. Another funny situation: In Fegersheim, they used to bury people in the direction of the access door of the cemetery! In order that at revival the dead can go out fast without having to climb over the wall. But the access door changed 3 times, so we have tombstones in 3 different directions in the same cemetery.
