-"the name on DINA BAT(=daughter of ) ISRAEL GUREVITCH

the last row is not readable

-the grave stone is KORVITZ"

-(all I can read is)
(Line 1 last word) Israel
(Line 2) Gurewitz (which is the same as Horowitz)

-"Dina wife of Israel
Died while still young"

-It is not easy to read apart from the bit that you possibly really want. The reference is to "Israel Gurvitz" [the bit on the left of line 1 is Israel and the 2nd line says Gurvitz]























Some graves in the cemetery.
I would say there are about 100 stones still remaining.But may be more,hidden by bush of the forest which covers half of the cemetery.Some of the stones had sunk into the ground and are only partially readable.
The fence around the cemetery still exists but ,as far as the gate is opened, people come to gather mushrooms and kids play in part of the cemetery.
It's very sad.
