mapping Jewish life and death in the Zittau region
MAZEWA is an international youth project which centres on the Jewish cemetery in Zittau, a small town in the border region between Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic. During two volunteer projects with young people from all over Europe, we have approached one of the last authentic historical places of Jewish life in the region and (re)discovered it as a digital place of learning and remembrance. Both volunteer projects took place in summer 2021. From November 2020, we organised cultural events on Jewish regional history and Jewish life today.
