Setting up matzeiva in destroyed cemetery by R' Aaron Cohen

Setting up matzeiva in destroyed cemetery by R' Aaron Cohen

Rav Oshry describes the wholesale destruction of Jewish cemeteries throughout Lithuania by the Nazis and their Lithuanian accomplices. A Mr. Segal posed the following Shaila to Rav Oshry: The tombstones of his parents’ graves had been destroyed and it was impossible to identify the location of their burial within the cemetery. Should he set up a Matzeiva (tombstone) memorializing his parents in the cemetery, even if it would not be located where they were buried?
