The Foundation for Jewish Heritage was tasked with assessing how historic Jewish cemeteries are currently being promoted in Georgia, Hungary, Lithuania, Moldova, Poland, Slovakia and Ukraine, and what the potential of Jewish cemeteries as visitor destinations is in these seven focus countries through a variety of lenses.
