The Brest-Litovsk Jewish cemetery has a harrowing history. In present day Belarus, it cannot be seen, it has no markers and no-one would know that it ever existed.

However, in the last 15 years, gravestones that once stood in the cemetery have been surfacing all over the region. There are now approximately 1500 reclaimed gravestones, some broken and some intact. We are campaigning to raise funds to create a memorial wall using the reclaimed headstones. It is vital that we preserve the past, to create a symbol of hope for future generations.

The Together Plan is an associate member of AEPJ Jewish Heritage and is building a Jewish journey through Belarus. This memorial will feature along the route and help visitors to discover Brests rich Jewish heritage. It will also guide people to the contemporary Belarusian Jewish communities of today.

These headstones have been on a long journey and each one represents a life. It's time to give them a final resting place with an opportunity to shine a light on the little known, but vitally important story of the Soviet Jews. In so doing we will be supporting the revival of the Jewish community of Brest that exists today.

About the charity

The Together Plan

RCN 1154167
The Together Plan is a UK charity dedicated to the rehabilitation, repair and revival of Jewish communities coming out of collective trauma in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, enabling, rather than providing, through a self-help approach. In spite of the traumatic past, there are many who yearn to reconnect with their lost identity. It is the mission of The Together Plan charity, to help those Jews still living in the region learn how to rebuild their communities, and also to reconnect those in the diaspora to their ancestry and the homes they left behind. The Together Plan is playing a vital and much needed role in the repair and renewal process for a better connected and meaningful Jewish future for Jews everywhere. We send humanitarian aid and resources that reach Jewish and non-Jewish communities throughout Belarus and our community work helps to bring Jewish and non-Jewish people together for a better civil society.
