INTRODUCTION EXHIBITION



It is a fitting tribute to the many Jews who perished in the Holocaust that they are remembered by such memorials, that their names have been etched in stone to commemorate in perpetuity their lives and the existence of the towns they once called home.
These monuments have been erected in many Jewish cemeteries throughout the world, perhaps in no greater numbers than exists in the New York and New Jersey metropolitan area. Each memorial is dedicated to either a town that lost its Jewish population to the Nazi regime and their collaborators, or to the many Jewish residents who once inhabited these towns.
