Matzevot from Goworowo Jewish cemetery / locating photos of gravestones by Israel SHAFRAN #poland #photographs #records


 

I have come across some information online about two different sets of pre-war gravestones that have been recovered in Goworowo, numbering about 110 in total. This site https://iajgscemetery.org/eastern-europe/poland/goworowo makes reference to Israel SHAFRAN who took pictures of some of the gravestones in 2005.  Unfortunately the email for Mr SHAFRAN no longer works.
 
I also came across this site http://cmentarze-zydowskie.pl/goworowo.htm, which references someone called Ygdal STAV who visited Goworowo from Israel in 2001 and took up the matter of preserving the matzevot with Chief Rabbi of Poland, Michael Schudrich and the Goworowo commune.  

Can anyone put me in touch with Israel SHAFRAN or Ygdal STAV, or suggest how I can find out more?
