Newly discovered picture of Jewish Gravestone


Mr. Eric Friedman has kindly sent me this picture - from around 1900 showing one of his family's graves in the Vilkaviskis Jewish Cemetery.

It shows the traditional "chalet" style graves that were very common at this time.

This is perhaps the best picture I have seen and thank you Eric for allowing me the share
this.
