I visited the Jewish Cemetery in Wesseling in 1987 and it is a historic site. The city has gated the cemetery and it is well maintained. I actually wrote to the city hall in Wesseling last year and asked if I could pay someone to go out and copy info from several stones. They instead, free of charge, sent quite a bit of info re: the Jews and Wesseling and went to the cemetery and took photographs for me. They are very helpful and gracious.
