Radauti, Sept. 2009

Jewish cemetery, Radauti, showing women’s tombstones

 

And here are some men’s tombstones — showing the different iconography expressed in the carving. Particularly striking is the image of the Hand of God breaking the Tree of Life.

 

Many if not most of the carvings on both the men’s and the women’s stones appear to have been carried out according to stenciled templates.
