SÖST: 59494 North Rhine-Westphalia (Gerz)
The cemetery was beautiful, well kept, and obviously not well attended. We did, however, find small rocks placed on the top of tombstones by someone. A book was written in 1992, with pictures of the Söst Jewish cemetery and German translation of the Hebrew inscriptions; it is well detailed. Every grave is numbered, with details given about each.
