A Call to all
Zembrover Landsleit 1947
Zembrover Relief and Ladies' Auxiliary invite you to a
MEMORIAL MEETING for the fallen Zembrover Jews... It is your
duty as friends of the people who were born in
your hometown Zembrove to honor the memory of the fallen
heroes and martyrs who gave their lives that we Jews in
America might live...We are glad to know that survivors of
Zembrov are now located in all parts of the world, Poland,
Russia, France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Palestine and
Shanghai. We are in touch with all our Zembrover that now live
in the United States...We want you to come and hear for
yourself the letters of thanks from your own people of Zembrov.
Come and hear the greetings from your families and friends."
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."
