Iosel Cohn died in 1933. He lived in Botosani and possibly Bucharest. Can anyone tell from the type of gravestone (cement or stucco) with a photo of the deceased and the raised grave what Romanian cemetary this grave might be located in? I have checked Botosani and there is no record for his burial there.
