Alternate name: Semihaly. 4758 2122, 110.8 miles ENE of Budapest. Heritage Foundation for Preservation of Jewish Cemeteries (a.k.a. HFPJC), a volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to the restoration of neglected cemeteries throughout Eastern Europe, reported that the Semihaly (Budszentmihaly) cemetery was the victim of ruination and neglect. Vandals are unidentified. Semihaly cemetery grounds were devastated with body parts strewn among the ruins. The representative recovered the remains with his bare hands. Then, HFPJC commenced restoration by attempting to obtain the original survey and map from the government authorities, who are very helpful and accommodating. Eventually, after restoration is completed, photos of the individual tombstones will be available. A committee of Semihaly descendants currently is being formed.

UPDATE: HFPJC will build a cement retaining wall to keep the eroding grounds "in check" in a dam-like fashion. Subsequently, the new fence will be erected.
