Renovation of vandalized headstone

Grant for the Jewish community in Bielsko-Biała for renovation of vandalized headstone

The Jewish cemetery in Bielsko-Biała was vandalized in summer 2021. Dozens of headstones were destroyed, including that of Wilhelm Freud, a relative of Sigmund Freud, father of psychoanalysis, and Antonina Wiener, grandmother of Professor Shlomo Avineri, a philosopher and political scientist, and former director-general of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The Jewish community in Bielsko-Biała is renovating the three ruined tombstones.
