Memory in stone

The Memory in Stone section is a database of Jewish graves from all kinds of cemeteries – Jewish, municipal, military and other. The documentation is produced on the basis of preserved tombstones as well as archival materials. Our database also contains information on the matzevot which were removed from cemeteries as a result of site desecration, and are now housed in museums or other places.
