The cemetery at Krynki, Poland #poland


Bob Silverstein
 

Krynki, Poland, is a town east of Bialystok on what is now the border with Belarus.  Jews lived and thrived there for over two centuries.  The Germans deported the last of them in November, 1941.  Like so many other towns and cities throughout Poland, all that remains of the Jewish presence are three synagogues and the cemetery.  However, the descendants of those Jews of Krynki are scattered around the globe and are now coming together to restore the cemetery.
