Our project

Over 80 years ago, more than 1200 remnants of headstones that once stood in the Brest-Litovsk Jewish cemetery were desecrated and used for other purposes.

These 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 honour the community that was so brutally extinguished, and educate visitors about Brest’s Jewish community of today.
