Obj. ID: 46379 Holocaust Memorial in the Old Jewish Cemetery in Lipnik nad Becvou, Czech Republic
Who is Commemorated?
164 Jews of Lipnik killed in the Holocaust
A series of rough stone slabs lead off the main path of the cemetery towards one of its walls, ending at a sculpture made of brown (rusted?) iron. At the start of the slab path is a small metal plaque with an inscription in Czech.
The iron sculpture takes the shape of a doorway or window, with a lattice of Stars of David, also of iron, inside it. Attatched to the latice is a black panel with the word Holocaust written on it in hebrew, followed by a list of names; the 164 Jews of Lipnik killed in the Holocaust.
[The word Holocaust in Hebrew is followed by the names of the 164 Jews of Lipnik killed in the Holocaust]
