preserving the past – building the future

80 years after the destruction of the Brest-Litovsk Jewish cemetery, a stunning memorial is coming to life. Over 1200 remnants of headstones that once stood in the cemetery were desecrated and used for other purposes. Discovered over the last 20 years, these headstones will finally come home to rest.

These plans, which are as beautiful as they are powerful, are completed and construction is beginning. This is where you come in…

We are well on our way to meeting our fundraising goal, but we can’t do it without your support.

This memorial will be a testament to Brest’s rich Jewish heritage, acknowledge and honour the community that was so brutally extinguished, and educate visitors about Brest’s vibrant Jewish community of today.
