New OA Database: “A World Beyond: Jewish Cemeteries in Turkey 1583-1990”

The computerized database, containing 61,022 Jewish tombstones from across Turkey, is the largest academic tombstone database of its kind in the world. The fruit of the labor of numerous individuals and bodies, its primary goals are to preserve the remnants of the gradually-disappearing Jewish life in Turkey, aid scholars to paint a broader and richer picture of the past, and enable interested laypersons to search for their roots.
