Work is finished at the Markuszów New Jewish Cemetery in Lublin Voivodeship, Poland

Work is finished at the Markuszów New Jewish Cemetery in Lublin Voivodeship, Poland. Due to the wartime desecration of the burial site, only 29 of the original 2,500 tombstones remain. Thanks to our work the Markuszów New Jewish Cemetery is now protected. It is fenced and has a plaque, which can be scanned for historical information. A rededication ceremony has been preliminarily set for 29th June. This work would not have been possible without the Foundation for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland – FODŻ who supported the implementation of the project and Friends of Jewish Heritage in Poland who partly funded the project. Thank you for your support!
