The annual Yearbooks of the Leo Baeck Institute include a
meticulous bibliography of all books and articles dealing with
German Jews, published during the preceding year. Some of these
publications deal with cemeteries and the entries can be extracted
by anyone with access to a complete series, plus the diligence and
motivation. A large but not complete set is at Jewish Board of
Education in Rockville, Maryland.

"Der juedische Friedhof Schoenhauser Allee [in Berlin-Prenzlau]" by
Rosemarie Koehler and Ulrich Kratz-Whan. Berlin 30, Potsdamerstr.
199. 192 pp. DM 24.80. Of the 22,500 burial plots some were
destroyed by wartime destruction. The book is in two parts:
1827-80, and 1880-1939. There is an alphabetical register and some
short biographies.

EICHSTETTEN: The cemetery of Eichstetten is particular saddening because
the stones are almost all unreadable and the grave register
disappreared during the period of the holocaust. When there last,
an archivist in the town hall (where one gets the key to the
cemetery) advised me that they were working on a cemetery diagram
and hoped to have it done in time for a commemmorative even in
1994. A person that had lived in that location his entire life
and knew nothing about it.

ERMETZHOFEN: Also contains burials from Welbhausen and Uffenheim.
tHese towns are several kilometers north of Rothenburg. About 1983
the cemtery was in fair condition and stones were legible. The key
and records to the cemetery are kept by the mayor of Ermetzhofen.

WšRZBERG: Also Fechenbach (now Collenberg). The cemetery is actually
in Reistenhausen (1 k. from Fechenbach). Very large cemetery up in
the hills. The Priest from Fechenbach (Collenberg) took us there.
I believe he got the key from the mayor of Reistenshausen. Perhaps
1/2 dozen burials in last 50 years. All but the very old ones
legible but all Hebrew. The Priest from Fechenbach also has a
record book from the 1800s listing all births, marriages & deaths
from that town. In his letter to me he said this had been the
cemetery for Wrzberg, although to me it seems a bit far for that.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
