June 28 marked the 100th anniversary of the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand, in Sarajevo, by Gavrilo Princip — a killing that served as the spark for World War I.
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 fell in battle.
As our own World War I remembrance, we post images from a few of these cemeteries here. More will follow.
May their souls be bound up in the bond of life.
