  1. Interesting! 50 years ago there still was a small community in Vilna and a Karaite cemetery in Crimea. Those who passed away in Vilna were transported to that cemetery, near Yalta but up in the mountains, and buried there. In the 60’s, we saw some recent burials. They had the most incredible wrought-iron wreaths that looked like they were made out of oak leaves but covered with some kind of paint that prevented them from rusting. Imagine, carrying coffins up the mountain!
