 During the "Reunion" of Gibraltar Camp 2 internees and descendants of internees, organized by Prof. Diana Cooper-Clark in November 2016. The group visited the Orange Street Cemetery. This was the first time that a proper  Kaddish  was said over my sister Yvonne's (ZT"L) grave by a  minyan.   Ainsley Henriques (in the checked shirt) and his step-brother David Matalon (not pictured here) are the wonderful persons responsible for arranging for a new stone to be placed on her grave. The original stone had been stolen years before.
