For the past few weeks I have been describing my trip through Poland to different graves of Polish tzaddikim of the past. I visited over 30 sites, from the earliest-known graves in Lublin and Krakow, to the final resting place of those that were murdered by the Germans in the Holocaust. I even had the sad zechut, in Warsaw, to partake in the mitzvah of accompanying a person on his last journey.
In the end we are all part of an “Am Kadosh,” a Holy Nation, and therefore all Jewish gravesites are holy and we as a people fight to preserve graves of all Jews. If cemeteries are not visited they will be left in ruins and, ultimately, destroyed.
