Holy Kevorim of Germany

by Reb Akiva @ Mystical Paths

While the soil of Germany is soaked in the blood of 6 million Jewish martyrs who died Al Kiddush Hashem, prior to World War II it was the home of over 1,000 years of holy yidden and various tzadikim.

A good friend of mine frequently travels to Germany on business and visits the kevorim (the burial sites) of the holy tzadikim that survived World War II.  Here’s some pictures he shares with us…
