Jewish cemeteries are called Houses of Life for good reason. This book shows how burial grounds across Europe reflect the ways that specific Jewish communities have lived and continue to live. Thirty cemeteries are profiled, starting with the Roman era, running through Islamic Spain and medieval Italy to baroque and 19th-century Germany, and ending in present-day Britain and France. Each cemetery is illustrated with historical and current plans, maps, paintings, drawings, and photographs of both the cemeteries and the communities they have served.
