Dear Gary Rogovin,

As my father and grandfather are buried in Cz.I think I can tell you with
certainty that the graves were inscribed in Latin as well as Hebrew
lettering. I think the Hebrew letters were the usual ones "May she/he rest
i n peace" I am not certain that the names were written in Hebrew.
I'm forwarding your question to my cousin's son who has both photos and has
visited the cemetery, he'll be able to help you.

Hoping that you'll find the grave,
