A Walk Through Paris

As always on vacation, my sweetie and I visit cemeteries just as often as we visit museums or art galleries. The spaces in which a society’s dead are honored or buried or entombed are interesting looks into their culture. The photos below were taken at cemeteries in Paris.

Dikerman-Gelber family, died (exterminated) in Auschwitz-Birkenau. There are far too many of these memorials, sadly.
