Jerusalem Cemetery--Etzel Fighters

Jewish communities have burial societies. In Israel the cemeteries are sectioned off so that each burial society has its own area. Even though Harry Hurwitz was in South Africa during Israel's War for Independence, he was close enough to the Etzel veterans to be buried in their section of Har Hamenuchot Cemetery, Jerusalem.

At the funeral I noticed these graves. Some of the people I had known, and others I didn't.
