Cleaning the cemetery, 2021

We’ve been regularly taking care of the Jewish cemetery in 2021. Major cleanings took place on May 4, June 2 and June 16. I’m deeply moved to share with you that over 90 students from 3 Brzesko schools joined us in June.  

We mowed the grass at the cemetery also in July and August and about a week prior to the March of Remembrance we cleaned the Jewish cemetery together with over 60 Brzesko students. Couple of days later the City administration sent a team to help us mow the grass. Due to that the entire 1.41 hectares of the cemetery looked neat and clean for our commemorative events. Just have a look at some of the photos taken in 2021.

That’s what the cemetery looks like after about a month of not mowing the grass
