More on Painted Gravestones
On his web site, Tomasz Wisniewski, the Bialystok-based pioneer of documenting Jewish heritage sites in eastern Poland, has posted extensive photo galleries of painted gravestones in Poland. Some are pre-war pictures and some show stones today. On some, the painted decoration is no longer visible, some show current faded traces, and others show reconstructions of how the colors once were.
