It is difficult to travel to Eastern Europe without getting a real and tangible sense of the magnitude of the events that shook the continent during the Second World War. The size of Warsaw Jewish cemetery, with its 100 000 graves, is a proportional testimony to the size of the Jewish community in that city before 1943. (350 000 individuals , one third of the city population). By November 1943, after the final liquidation of the Jewish ghetto, none but a handful had survived. The pre-1943 cemetery still remains, with its graves unattended, as all close descendants and relatives were decimated.

In so many cities of Eastern Europe, all that is left of the Jewish population is the cemeteries. And the shadows...

Beware, François, because there are people about who despise the idea of peace in Europe. Your thoughts and your photographs inspire me......

An extremely interesting and somewhat shocking statistic, supported by this every so emotive image François. The mono conversion certainly adds to that feeling of sadness.
