The Remaining Tombstones at the Jewish Cemetery of Wysokie Mazowieckie!

 


 

   
               

Restoration of  the Jewish Cemetery of Wysokie Mazowiecki

Albert Stankowski & Adv. Monika Krawczyk of FODŻ (Foundation for the  Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland - Fundacja Ochrony Dziedzictwa Żydowskiego) supervised reconstruction and supplied the photographs. Fund raising for the Project was originally started with PJCRP (Norman Weinberg).

Implementation of The Wysokie Mazowieckie Cemetery Restoration, May 2006

                                                                                                            

Jews settled in Wysokie Mazowieckie in the 17th Century.  In the second half of the 19th Century they became and  remained the  majority of the town's citizens, contributing to its economic  and cultural development.  During the German occupation, in August 1941, all  Wysokie Mazowiecki Jews were forced to live in a ghetto. The ghetto was liquidated on November 2, 1942, and its 2000  Jewish inhabitants were sent to the camp in Zambrow, and afterwards, in January 1943 to Auschwitz. 

 

In memory of the Jewish inhabitants of Wysokie Mazowieckie, murdered in the time of the  Shoah by the Germans and their collaborators. 

 

 

                                                                                                             The Wysokie  Mazowiecki Cemetery  Dedication & Commemoration Ceremonies will be held at 10:00h on Thursday, November 23, 2006.

 

 

The Recovered Tombstones

The inscriptions in Hebrew, when available, were deciphered from the photographs and translated by Ada Holtzman. The sign "?" added when I was unsure.

Legend for the abbreviations used on the tombstones can be found in my web page:

http://www.zchor.org/heritage/abbreviations.htm

For example:

 

לפ"ק  LP"K לפרט קטן (ספירת השנים ללא  ציון ספרת האלפים)

 By the abbreviated era (without mentioning the thousands, e.g. תשס"ב=762 instead of  התשס"ב=5762

תנצב"ה  T.N.TZ.B.H תהיה נשמתו צרורה בצרור החיים

May his soul be bound up in the bond of everlasting life
