Documentation of the cemetery, May 2019

Foundation for Documentation of Jewish Cemeteries in Brzesko: yesterday Witold Wrzosiński and Remigiusz Sosnowski spent the entire day in Brzesko and documented the next couple of hundred matzevot at the Jewish cemetery. These data will soon be added to the database of the foundation.
This work will be completed this year, and it means that we will have information on all the Jews buried at the cemetery whose matzevot still have readable inscriptions. (Unfortunately in many cases inscriptions have been lost.) I can only express my deep gratitude to all those who donated money for this project and to the Foundation – it’s the most amazing experience to observe these men working, deciphering the words that would seem completely unreadable.
