Very moving to be here to look at the names on the walls who suffered thought in WW2. And outside thousands of grave stones.
I have been here twice and it still amazes me. Entry to the cemetery, which is part of the Jewish Museum, is by ticket but it is well-worth it. The scene is both beautiful and haunting and gives a very real view of the long history of Jews in this community.
Entry to the cemetery was included in the synagogue tour ticket that we bought at Maiselova synagogue. The cemetery is in a poor state of repair and gravestones are crowded several deep and some are toppling over and the wording on them has eroded away. It's very sad to see. …
This cemetery is the final resting place for so many and the crowding of the graves gives one pause. There are some tzadik's buried here and it was fascinating to see people pay their respects.
The Cemetery walking tour was very moving, especially since I rented the audio equipment that tells much more than just walking through. I found myself being transported in time and had chills as I listened to the history and read the information plates along the way.
