5/15/2014 12:34 AM her? grave[Hebrew] visited[German]
Yom Kippur eve, taf resh tsadi bet [20 September 1931]
4 Tishri, taf resh tsadi gimmel [4 October 1932]
26 Elul, taf resh tsadi vav [24 September 1935]
5/15/2014 9:02 AM It can't be "her" grave. I would read the word as kevarot, graves (pl). Would normally be written with a vav--"o" vowel between reish and tav, but can be written this way.
5/15/2014 11:03 AM Indeed קברת in old fashioned Hebrew is the same as קברות in modern Hebrew, meaning "graves". In my opinion this is a list of dates of visits by the writer to some graves.
5/15/2014 11:37 AM The 3rd date - 26th Elul taf resh tsadi vav - translates as September 13, 1936 according to http://www.shoresh.org.il/dates/,
rather than 24 September 1935.
