Cleaning of Kovanice Cemetery

On 15 July 2021, we organized our first volunteer cleaning at the Jewish cemetery in Kovanice. The volunteers cleaned up major part of the cemetery, including a recently fallen tree, with great energy. The accompanying task was to find the previously unknown tombstone of Franz Kafka's grandmother; unfortunately, we were unsuccessful, and we will continue our search next year, when we will finalize the cleaning of the cemetery.
Many thanks to Mojmir Maly, the head of the Administration of Buildings and Cemeteries Matana a.s., for his cooperation and professional guidance, and especially to all the volunteers from the wider Jewish community and beyond. You are all great, thank you!
