Breslau was an important center of Jewish elightenment, and this cemetery preserves faint memories of this golden age. The cemetery is in a strange state of simultaneous disrepair and restoration, showing some of the destruction wrought in the past, but restoring some its tombstones. It's...More

You can find a lot of very very old thumbstones with some interesting and unexpected names on them. Some of them of course destroyed of removed, but also those one have a special astmosphere.
