Jewish Cemetery

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Heiliger Sand (Jewish Cemetery)
Heiliger Sand (Jewish Cemetery)
This is the oldest Jewish Cemetery in Europe, it happens to be located in Worms, Germany. It was started in the 11th century, the oldest gravestone is from 1076, and the site somehow was not destroyed during the Third Reich. I don't remember the whole story, but something about the caretaker and favors due to him.
It's really quite large and the stones are pretty close together...as they fell over they just set them back up as neatly as possible, not necessarily marking the gravesite.
It was quite moving to see.

Captivating indeed Shannon, both in word & deed. B&W is perfect considering the age of these headstones. The composition and background are outstanding. Thanks for the history lesson too. What a story this is. I'm glad you dug into your treasure chest for this one, Rhonda.
