The project will involve new research into relationships between the destruction of property by Nazis and their collaborators, and the use of religious spaces as killing sites.

We will explore spatial and temporal patterns of cultural destruction, and we will examine the ways in which Jewish cemeteries were damaged, re-used and erased during the Second World War and since.

We will consider the motivations behind the destruction of Jewish cemeteries and we will identify and analyse the variation in their treatment across different geographical areas.

We will then undertaken a number of social action projects at Jewish cemeteries
