WJC ZAMBROW

MATZEVOT

Zambrow, Poland
 
Zambrow Cemetery


From Avigdor Ben-Dov:

"...I'd like to share these photos of the Zambrow cemetery taken by the field workers sponsored and guided by Yad LeZehava Institute in Kedumim. They were taken in 2006. One can see that the area is large and it is fenced in (though open in some places). The biggest problem isn't cleaning up as some suggest doing, since most of it was done by YZI. The Polish mayor also was present when the group worked there and gave full cooperation.

The undergrowth and trees are the biggest problem as many more stones are probably buried and undiscovered, hidden by foliage. This also makes reading the inscriptions tough. Lots of work was done to find as many as possible and clean them up. I don't think any more visible stones exist, but there are some standing which are totally unreadable or broken beyond (repair).

One photo (below) is (of) a wonderful rededication ceremony held for Gedalia Tykocinski, whose matzeva (stone) was partially buried and separated. The workers put it together and said Kaddish over the grave when all was cleaned up."

On the following page, you will also find the images or more than forty matzevot (gravestones) found within the Zambrow cemetery, as well as the information inscribed on these stones.

 

 

Here is an automatic slide show of the YZI's work in 2006 at the Zambrow cemetery:

This slide show of approximately seventeen photographs comes to you in a WMV video format.
