Vor 5 Jahren: Müll-Sammlung am Jüdischen Friedhof Kriegshaber

April 9, 2013

Just beforehand: much has been improved at the cemetery, although some of the problems still exist. In 2007 however many parts of the cemetery were kind of jungle. So in the first step there was the need to remove bushes, lots of ivy, rotten trees and so on in order to lay open the grave marker – some 350 years old. Cutting down the jungle however just revealed the next problem: the cemetery since there was no more keeper for 2 years was misused as garbage damp by neighbors and passerby.  It took countless hours to remove at least mot of it, but we had a lot of supporters – in the neighborhood of the cemetery as well as from school classes, students or the youth group of the Jewish community from Augsburg. Last year some long overdue works took place to improve some of the old as fragile tomb stones, where now there finally some rotten trees and branches get chopped off.

So much has developed for the good, but there still is a lot to be done.
