CEME­TERY TO BE SUR­VEYED

The Jewish Chronicle - - WORLD NEWS -

A SUR­VEY to de­ter­mine the ex­act size of an an­cient Jewish ceme­tery in the Lithua­nian cap­i­tal of Vil­nius is to go ahead, a year af­ter it was first agreed. The fate of the 700-year-old Snipiskes ceme­tery was the sub­ject of an in­ter­na­tional out­cry af­ter the Lithua­nian gov­ern­ment al­lowed a con­struc­tion com­pany to start re­de­vel­op­ing the site.

Protests were led by the Stam­ford Hill­based Com­mit­tee for the Preser­va­tion of Jewish Ceme­ter­ies in Europe.
