I am looking for help in translating what the information is on this stone. I have about 60 photos taken in this cemetery (Beth Bleinheim) which I need help in reading and translating, plus some more photos in Beit Haim Berg Altena. But most of the Berg Altena ones are written in the Latin alphabet so I can see what the letters are even if I can't read the language. There is an album of the photos here

but I can put them up individually if you would like
