Publications

From sustainable tourism and heritage preservation to Jewish cemeteries in the classroom, a range of publications and lesson plans in several languages compiled by Jewish heritage experts.

Over the course of our previous EU-funded pilot projects, we were able to gain significant insights into a number of fields, from UAV technology to sustainable heritage tourism. Working with experts, the ESJF collated these insights into a set of instructional handbooks. We have also produced a standalone Prototype Handbook: Jewish Cemeteries and Sustainable Protection, co-written by Ruth Ellen Gruber. Put together with the generous support of the European Commission, these publications are open-access and free to download.

Handbooks

This manual provides a unique guide to exploring Jewish cemeteries in the classroom environment. With sections on Hungarian Jewish heritage, guides to interpreting tombstones and leading cemetery expeditions, and practical exercises, it contains all the tools necessary to help students engage with their local Jewish heritage in a meaningful way.

Tourism can play an important role in the long-term preservation of a heritage site, bringing with it attention, renewed interest in the site’s operation, and increased funding, but it also has its pitfalls, particularly with sites of religious significance, or those which evoke complex histories – and Jewish cemeteries are both. With sections on the different types of Jewish cemetery, the best features to draw attention to in your tour, and the rules and customs which must be observed, this manual provides you the template for organising an engaging, informative tour of the Jewish cemetery without violating religious rules or traditions.

This catalogue, produced by ESJF European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative, Centropa, and Foundation for Jewish Heritage with the support of the European Commission, provides an extensive guide to Jewish heritage preservation initiatives from across nine countries, from small-scale interventions by local residents to transnational partnerships. By examining these success stories, we can take valuable lessons, and begin to establish a framework for best practices for the long-term, sustainable protection of Jewish cemeteries across Europe.

Written by experts in the field of heritage preservation, this handbook addresses the social and economic challenges for sustainable heritage management, focusing on Jewish cemeteries specifically. It examines solutions and useful examples from a range of countries, hoping to offer insights to activists, NGO workers, municipal authorities and the general public.

 

Lesson Plans for Teachers

After our seminars, we invited teachers to send us their lesson plans on “Local Jewish Cemeteries.”

A selection of the best lesson plans in each language are available to download. You can use them in your lessons as they are, or as a source of ideas and inspiration for pro-active learning experiences for your students.
