Serbian Jewish Cemterery Being Squeezed By New Construction

Posted by: Jan Meisels Allen

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) reports a Jewish Serbian Cemetery being encroached by new construction and Roma (Gypsy) encampments.  The location, Nis,  is about 125 miles south of Belgrade. The Jewish community totals only 28 people in Nis. The Federation of Serbian Jewish Communities has protested, but the commercial construction appears not to be willing to let access to the gravestones be continued once their construction is completed.
