The Jewish cemetery in Stockelsdorf brings together the beauty of a wild refuge and the historical testimony of a past community and its members. The illustrated book, edited by Dr. Rolf Verleger and Nathanja Hüttenmeister, impressively takes both components into account. Each gravestone was photographed, its inscription transcribed and translated. Framed by graphic art and historical background reports, the Jewish cemetery in Stockelsdorf becomes more comprehensible to today’s visitors without taking away the place’s enchanted aura.
A scientific essay about the history of the Jews of Stockelsdorf is added to the illustrated book as an introduction.
Hardcover, 60 pages, 40 photographs, 10 graphic works, format 225 x 225 mm.
