Consortium Partners

Preserving Jewish cemeteries is an EU funded project, which brings together the expertise of three renowned international Jewish heritage NGOs with the goal of protecting Jewish cemeteries through awareness raising and education.

The consortium consists of the ESJF European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative, Centropa and the Foundation for Jewish Heritage.

As the third EU project the consortium has cooperated on to protect Jewish cemeteries, the current preparatory action builds on the previous knowledge developed from extensive research and surveys on Jewish cemeteries.

European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative

The European Jewish Cemeteries Iniative provides practical solutions on how to physically protect the Jewish cemeteries of Europe. The initiative’s preservation work aims to construct walls with locking gates around vulnerable cemeteries and look after the cemeteries’ general upkeep. By doing this, the ESJF Project hopes to preserve Jewish memory, especially in so-called ‘priority areas such as the former Soviet-bloc and South-Eastern Europe.
