Kindness of truth.
In the mega-shtetl of Berdichev.
With 100,000 photos of 61,022 tombstones.
Used to reinforce the walls against Ottoman invasion.
Erasing the last remnants of an ancient community.
An epidemic of vandalism in the historic cradle of Ashkenazi Jewry.
Replacing Latin crosses with Stars of David.
The “black wedding.”
Saying kaddish for a rust-belt congregation.
The Jewish graveyards of Cape Verde.
The mausoleum of the Ḥatam Sofer.
And how Hebrew wound up on a central column.
The Campus Iudeorum.
