The Holocaust memorial in Budapest’s main Kozma utca Jewish cemetery is under restoration — the umbrella Jewish organization Mazsihisz has opened a tender for the second phase of the work. The deadline for bids is June 16.

The memorial (which anchors a broad area of Holocaust commemorations in the cemetery) consists of upright slabs inscribed with thousands and thousands of names of the victims.

We hope that the renovation does not cancel out the comments and names left out of the inscriptions that — very movingly — were added later in pencil and ink.
