Preparatory works begin for ESJF restoration project at Letov Jewish Cemetery in the Czech Republic

Clearance work has started at Letov (Letau) Jewish Cemetery in the Czech Republic in advance of restoration work on the wall of the Bohemian site. The cemetery in Letov was founded at the beginning of the 18th century and is one of the oldest preserved Jewish cemeteries in northwestern Czech Republic.

The site was originally surrounded by a sandstone wall with a reddish tint. However, only vestiges remain today. In order to keep the site’s appearance historically consistent, the ESJF is constructing a stone wall which will replicate the original material.

The project is being undertaken in collaboration with our local partners, the Federation of Jewish Communities in the Czech Republic (http://www.fzo.cz/en/). The new wall should be completed by the end of the year.
