Alina had not yet completed the religious procedures to convert to Judaism He therefore has no right to be buried in an official cemetery controlled by the rabbinate.

It turns out that other victims, especially those of Russian origin, were not buried according to rabbinical procedures and halakha, Jewish law. The question is old.
