August 22, 1946
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Jewish leaders in Bohemia and Moravia are organizing special Jewish labor brigades to restore the devastated Jewish cemeteries in a number of towns. These brigades reset tombstones, fill craters and clean the cemetery grounds which have been neglected since the German occupation of Czechoslovakia. In many places the cemeteries cannot be restored, since their grounds have been used for public purposes.
