The city of Košice has published on the Internet a list of 163 gravesites in a local Jewish cemetery that were vandalised by three schoolboys in April. The list contains the names of people buried there, as well as some photos of the damaged gravestones.
The initiative is in response to what the city says are hundreds of requests from people around the world with roots in Košice for more information on whether their relatives' graves were disturbed.
The list is available on the Košice city site (www.kosice.sk) under the rubric "Nové na www.kosice.sk" at the entry for June 10, "Zoznam poškodených hrobov na Židovskom cintoríne v Košiciach".
