The recovered headstones story
In the summer
of 2014 about 20 plied up
headstones and headstone fragments were discovered in the Southeast
corner.Their placement indicated that they were moved form the
nearby empty site turned into a soccer field for poor kids
after WWII. The next year
they were placed face up in the area of their presumed origin.
In the meantime
another partially buried pile of at least 50 headstones and
fragments was discovered in a deep ravine along the Southeast
border. Initially, their number, a difficult to access site and
limited resources precluded timely recovery. However, thanks to an
unprecedented generosity of Ms. Lorraine Korn and Ms.
Kathy Sheets, by the early December 2016 all the artifacts
were returned to the area of their presumed original location.
