Matzevot, Slawatycze

This site is the ongoing result of a project undertaken by the Slawatycze Landsmanshaft, a group of Jewish descendants of Slawatycze, Poland.  In May of 2008 The Slawatycze Landsmanshaft rededicated the town’s Jewish cemetary.  We hope to illuminate upon that project, its motivations, consequences and context in the coming months and years.

“No one yet knows what awaits the Jews in the twenty-first century, but we must make every effort to ensure that it is better than what befell them in the twentieth, the century of the Holocaust.” – Benjamin Netanyahu

“… in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can’t build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death. I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness, I hear the ever approaching thunder, which will destroy us too, I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too will end, and that peace and tranquillity will return again.” – Anne Frank
