I visited Jewish Waldheim Cemetery in Chicago today to find that my great-grandfather Hyman Victor’s gravestone photo had been stolen, without a doubt sold for scrap metal. A sad conclusion to the story of his life I spent a lot of time reconstructing. As you can see in the background, my grandmother Ethel Malkin and great uncle Sol Kapp’s photos are also missing, along with many others in this section. (That’s my dad Leonard Malkin behind his grandfather’s gravestone in the photo.)

Hyman’s gravestone photo as seen in 2008:

    That’s too bad. Did they take the Cemetery 2.0 thing too?
