Renovation of Jewish cemeteries to continue

The government is financing the renovation of a further 46 neglected Jewish cemeteries with a budget of 532 million forints (EUR 1.5m), the Hungarian Jewish Heritage Foundation (Mazsok) told MTI on Monday.

In its statement, the foundation noted that in the first phase of its programme, 43 cemeteries were spruced up, costing 468 million forints altogether.

Mazsok started its programme in January 2018 aimed at reconstructing neglected Hungarian Jewish cemeteries, which are part of Europe’s cultural heritage.
