World War I – Memorials to fallen Jewish Soldiers

As we mark the 100th anniversary of World War I, we remember the Jewish soldiers who fell on the field of battle — and, in particular, we take a look at the memorials raised in their honor. Jews fought on all sides in the “War to End All Wars” — and a number of Jewish cemeteries in Europe have memorials to Jewish soldiers who were killed. Some are grandiose sculptures; some are fields of gravestones; some are more modest monuments. There are also memorial plaques in synagogues.

As our own World War I remembrance, we have created this gallery of images.

Our World War One gallery is expanding — so please feel free to send us your own images to add. We will post them with full photo credit (or please watermark the image before sending.)

If you would like us to include your own photos, please send them, with full description and photo credit, to jhe@jewish-heritage-europe.eu

Thanks!

May their souls be bound up in the bond of life.
