Work is set to begin on the fencing of the Briceva Jewish cemetery in northern Moldova (Bessarabia). This represents the first project undertaken by the ESJF in Moldova, and we are very grateful for the support and encouragement from Yvette Merzbacher and the LivingStones Association, without which this project would not have come to fruition.
Soon, work will also commence on our first two projects in Poland this year, both in the southwestern region of Lower Silesia, where the ESJF carried out substantial survey work last year. We are again grateful for the cooperation and support of our local partners, the Foundation for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland – FODŻ and its director Mona Cravson, with whom the ESJF has already worked to fence a dozen sites in Poland over the past two years. The two cemeteries to be fenced are located in Swidnica and Mieroszow.
