Restoring Legacy: Reclaiming the Brest-Litovsk Jewish Cemetery in Belarus

Hosted By: Qesher

Over 80 years ago, the headstones that once stood in the Brest-Litovsk Jewish cemetery (pre-war Poland and today Belarus) were desecrated and used for other purposes. Over 1,200 headstones have been discovered over the last 20 years, and will finally come home to rest in a stunning memorial. This memorial will be a testament to Brest’s rich Jewish heritage, acknowledge and honor the community that was so brutally extinguished in the Holocaust, and educate visitors about Brest’s Jewish community of today.

Host

Qesher

There are Jewish communities all around the globe with their own unique history, culture, places, and most of all, people and stories. All of them different, but sharing so much. The aim of Qesher is to connect these different Jewish traditions, not just to know of each other, but to learn about each other. We believe that there is great value in creating a deeper understanding within the Jewish world and exploring Jewish experiences and identities in all their diversity.
