The restored entrance to Kamenka's
Kamenka (Kaminka, Kamionka), Belarus is
located approximately 30 miles east of Grodno in northwest Belarus.
Prior to the Holocaust, Jews comprised a considerable proportion of the
population of Kamenka. Today, no Jews remain and the cemetery was left
in disrepair and abandoned for close to 60 years prior to the team's
arrival. In Kamenka, the team worked side by side with community
members - town officials, workmen, teachers and school children. With
their help, the team was able to erect a fence around the perimeter,
right gravestones, document gravestones, and beautify the grounds in
only four and a half days of work. By restoring this landmark of a once
vibrant Jewish community, the team essentially preserved the history of
the community for future generations.
