      The cemetery has a Jewish section - "Israelitische Abteilung", but isn't a
      real Jewish cemetery, didn't follow Jewish rules, and many of Jewish graves
      disappeared. Some of them you'll find at Central Cemetery in Jewish section
      at gate 4 in group 1d.

    Editor's Note: I have not changed Aunt Dot's words, but in the PDF version have added pictures, both from pictures belonging to the Buyer family and some modern pictures of places described in the story. I have also added endnotes that seek to provide information about people and places. This is a work-in-progress, and I would appreciate any…
