There are still a couple days to sign up to take part in the next stage of the “Holocaust Killing Sites” project that uses ground-penetrating radar and other non-invasive technologies to map Holocaust mass grave sites. The project, Recording Cultural Genocide and Killing Sites in Jewish Cemeteries, “focuses on raising awareness of the causes and consequences of cultural genocide and mass killings (using Jewish cemeteries desecrated by the Nazis as a pilot case study), directly tackling racism, xenophobia and hostility in the present.”

Led by archaeologist Dr. Caroline Sturdy Colls from Staffordshire University in the UK, the next phase of the two-year project takes place August 3-5 and will include maintenance work and inventory as well as non-invasive archaeological research in Wąwolnica, near Lublin., Poland.
The Polish NGO Studnia Pamieci is a partner in the project, which is also supported by the American NGO The Matzevah Foundation and the “Forgotten Foundation” — Fundacjaza Pomniane.
