cemetery statistics #belarus
Logan J. Kleinwaks
Can anyone supply or suggest where to find statistics about the state of
Belarussian cemeteries and their documentation? I am especially interested
in quantified descriptions of:
1) the rate at which the cemeteries are being destroyed (by natural or other
2) the rate at which inscriptions on the matzevot are becoming illegible
3) the extent of written or photographic documentation of the matzevot
If there are any standards by which cemeteries are considered endangered, I
would also be interested in knowing which Belarussian cemeteries qualify.
Thank you very much and best regards,
near Washington, D.C.
