A town in northeast Morocco, not far from the Algerian border.
"Southwest of Oujda is Debdou, a town which had a significant Jewish population, as shown by its large mellah and two Jewish cemeteries. Debdou saints include Youssef Bensimon, Jacob Cohen, Ishak Ben Moche Cohen, Mardochee Ben Moche Cohen, and Moche Ben Sultan."
UPDATE: There are two Jewish cemeteries up the hill.
Old Cemetery: A mud wall that has melted away surrounds the old one, although its metal gate still exists. The graves are marked by stones the length and width of a casket. None of the tombstones have engravings. The older cemetery dates back 900 years.
