If the death occurred in hospital, it is important to ask the doctor on duty immediately not to carry out an autopsy and to say that collection of the deceased's body will be arranged by members of the Jewish Community.

If the death occurred at home, the Medical Examiner must be informed immediately. Before the Medical Examiner arrives, obtain from the doctor who attended the death the document called a "treatment certificate" (“Behandlungsschein”). Only then can the deceased's body be released immediately and transferred to our cemetery.
