The Florida Holocaust Museum presents the North American premiere of the "Matzevot for Everyday Use" exhibition that features photographs taken in Poland by Polish photographer Łukasz Baksik to document the ways in which Jewish gravestones have been stolen and re-appropriated. The matzevot are now parts of fences, pavements, and grindstones. Even today, the matzevot continue to be used in cases where ordinary stone, of which there is no shortage, could be used.
