Exhibit of rescued matzevot fragments @ Huta Bedzin | Będzin | Śląskie | Poland

More than 1,000 fragments of Jewish headstones that the Communist authorities removed in the 1960s from the Jewish cemetery on Zagorska Street and used to build a railway station platform will be exhibited to the public.

Excavations have been going on for six months to recover them, and they will eventually used to create a memorial.

At 5 pm, at the Muzeum Cafe Jerozolima, there will be a presentation about the history of the cemetery.
