Please left-click on each thumbnail photo to see the enlarged image of the memorial. The inscriptions included below are for the most part only copies of the English inscriptions that appear. It is highly recommended that the Yiddish and Hebrew inscriptions be read too, perhaps with the appropriate dictionary by one's side. Also many names of our martyrs are included on selected memorials.
Also see on the preceding page of this exhibition similar photographs of memorials found in the province of Quebec.
