The Star of David has caught my attention at visits to British and German War Cemeteries. I’ve taken particular interest in Maurice Sugarman and the Kohnstamm Brothers. Using the Jewry Roll of Honour I’ve started building a record of men who served in the . Manchester Regiment Jewry Roll.
I have heard that the Jewish grave markers at Fricourt German Cemetery were removed by Nazi troops in WWII. Lest we forget such actions.
