Treblinka

We began our day on Friday with a visit to the Okopowa Cemetery, the only Jewish cemetery in Warsaw and the largest in Poland. Established in 1806, the site contains 300,000 graves and burials are still held there. Teens saw how the stones were uniquely designed to represent various persons (tzedakah box for a charitable person, candlesticks for a woman). Two large stones are also there to represent BBYO’s restoration and clean-up work at the cemetery.
