Wailing Wall, Remuh Cemetery

Wailing Wall, Remu'h Cemetery

This cemetery was established in 1533 and is largest Jewish cemetery in Europe in terms of number of graves and sarcophagi. It was almost totally destroyed by the Nazis during World War II; the wall was constructed using remnants of the old tombstones.
