I took these photos in September 2005. They show the entrance of the former German cemetery in Altker (today Zmajevo) in the Batschka. The text is: At this place was the German Evangelical cemetery from 1827 until 1944.

I don't know exactly when it was erected but it is the most dignified German cemetery in the Batschka I have ever seen. It is situated in a nature reserved area and a man watches everyone who visits the place.

When we were there he asked us where we were from. And when I said that some of my ancestors are in that cemetery he got tears in the eyes and showed us all around.
