I wrote about the use of grave stones, to pave roads, on this blog post: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2011/07/26/did-the-nazis-use-jewish-tombstones-to-pave-roads/

The photo below allegedly shows a road paved with Jewish grave stones. Actually, this is a still shot from the fictional movie entitled “Schindler’s List.”

The following quote is from the news article:

Speaking about Polish photographer Lukasz Baksik’s works that show how Jewish gravestones in Poland have been stolen and reused for other purposes over the decades — particularly during the eras of Nazi and Soviet rule — Elizabeth Gelman said, “The big thing for us is this has been going on for so long. Generations in Poland have grown up walking on and walking by — and in some cases even dancing — on people’s graves, without thinking about it, without really knowing what they are.”

Furthermore, Gelman noted, “this goes on in all of our communities, to some extent. What aren’t we seeing? What have we pushed to the side and stopped caring about? What are the things in our own communities that are important to recognize but we no longer see?”
