Russia/Belarus: fruitful summer research on Jewish heritage
Sefer – the Center for University Teaching of Jewish Civilization in Moscow — carried out three weeklong field schools this summer during which students documented Jewish material heritage and carried out interviews and other research on local Jewish history and traditions.
Two of the sessions took place in Russia — in Smolenskaya oblast and in Bryansk district — and one took place in Belarus, in Beshenkovichi, where one of the aims was to completely document the Jewish cemetery as part both of a broader catalogue of Jewish cemeteries in the country and a general Jewish heritage preservation project in the town .
