Protecting the Jewish Cemetery of Kożmin Wielkopolskie
The Krotochwile association, a Polish non-profit non-governmental organization has been working for years to document and protect the historic cemetery of the former Prussian town of Koschmin, home to a large Jewish community for decades before the Second World War.
The cemetery was established around 1790. The volunteer group has discovered 519 burial sites, inventoried 466 tombstones, published 183 tombstones in their online directory and have identified 425 people in the list of town residents. Your support will help them continue this volunteer work preserving a rare cemetery that largely survived the devastation of the German occupation of Poland during WWII and its aftermath.
