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.
We are well on our way to meeting our $325,000 fundraising goal, but we can’t do it without your support. There are 5 project milestones.
These plans, which are as beautiful as they are powerful, are completed and construction is commencing – but we can’t finish this project without your help. We are grateful for your contributions and are asking for all funds to be received by August 2024.
