(Researched and translated from German December 2009)
The cem. was not founded in 1568, but most probably about 1620, when the cemetery in nearby Burgau was given up.
There are more than 1000 gravestones; but the total number of the graves is uncertain.
In 2007/2008 the Hebrew inscriptions were deciphered by an Israeli couple under my supervision.
All tombstones were photographed.
The deciphering of the German inscriptions goes on.
Scientific research is in progress, and a publication shall follow.
