Guides to Keidaner Cemeteries

The Keidan Jewish Cemetery Project

In 2018, students at the Kedainiai Atzalynas Gymnasium began cleaning and cataloguing the remaining tombstones at Keidan’s old Jewish cemetery. To view video of that project and access a database of the stones and their inscriptions, visit teacher Laima Ardaviciene’s website “Maceva_Keidan”. An account of its inception and a history of the cemetery by Ben-Tsiyon Klibansky is here.
