Powiekszenie Nowy cmentarz zydowski w Krakowie - Blowup The New Jewish Cemetery in Krakow

"Polish-English edition. Jewish cemeteries evidence the centuries-long presence of Jews in Poland. The specific Jewish culture was shaped here. The 2nd World War brought the Holocaust of 3 million Polish Jews and irreversible losses in cultural heritage. The cemeteries that survived are the last witnesses of the world that no longer exists. For years, their religious and cultural value was not appreciated. Now, numerous initiatives occur aimed at rescuing the cemeteries. They are described, inventoried, examined from the scientific point of view and photographed. More and more publications on the cemeteries are published. Each project aimed at the preservation of the Jewish heritage for the future generations deserves special admiration. We are very glad that Iwe may recommend to you this album about the New Jewish Cemetery in Krakow at Miodowa street. Although it mainly shows equality in face of death and inevitability of the passing time, which is so important in Judaism, it also reflects the life and history of the Krakow Jews closed in the rescued stones."

Fine condition.
