  • Kozma cemetery buried the Jews of Budapest area. They seemed very well managed, there is only one small salons and most of them are locked and can be grassy weeds. If anything is a fairly large scale, Hungary's Jewish community before World War II, you can imagine how keossneunji.

  • Today, 2016.11 X 14 o'clock was closed the cemetery. In the morning I checked on the Internet and that will be open. Currently, it is written in red "closing soon". I'm so sorry! Not the public complacency sets in.

  • The Kozma Street Jewish cemetery, Europe's largest Jewish sírkertje, the last resting place of 400 000 people. These are historically outstanding and still functioning Memorial is extremely bad and needs an urgent maintenance. Deforestation and the Kozma Street Cemetery Friends mission is to regain and preserve the cemetery, the dignity, the scenes here and this historic Memorial. www.zsidotemeto.hu
