We are sorry to report that the monument standing at the Jewish cemetery in Brzeziny (lodzkie province) has again fallen prey to vandals. Anti-Semitic graffiti was painted on the memorial tablet. The police started an investigation to identify perpetrators.

The Jewish cemetery in Brzeziny, located at current Reymonta St., was established probably in 16th century and was in use until the Nazi devastation during the Holocaust. During communist regime in Poland a sand mine was built on the cemetery grounds. Witnesses report that sand mixed with human bones was used to make prefabricates destined to be used in constructing large condominiums. Many tombstones were stolen and used for construction works, among others, to reinforce the fishing ponds. In 1992, on the initiative of the descendants of the Jews from Brzeziny, the cemetery grounds were fenced.
