ESJF Fencing Projects set to kick off in Moldova and Poland

Work is set to begin for the fencing of the Jewish Cemetery of Briceva in Northern Moldova (Bessarabia). This will be the first project undertaken by the ESJF in Moldova and we are very grateful for all the support and encouragement from Yvette Merzbacher and LivingStones Association to allow for this project to come to fruition.

Shortly, work is also to begin on our first two projects this year in Poland, both in the south-western region of Lower Silesia where the ESJF undertook substantial survey work last year. We are again grateful for the cooperation and support of our local partner Foundation for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland – FODŻ and its director Mona Cravson, with whom the ESJF has already partnered in the fencing of around a dozen sites in Poland over the last two years. The two cemeteries to be fenced are at Swidnica and Mieroszow.
