International Jewish Cemetery Project - Malta

There are also at least three existing Jewish cemetries. Two of which are un-used. One is the Jewish cemetery at Kalkara, the other un-used one is at Ta' Braxia and the one being used today is at Marsa. If you are at all interested I am completing a list of all the people buried in each cemetery and can let you have it as soon as it is finished.
