Graves of American soldiers of the Jewish faith in the national American cemeteries in France are being photographed for the fallen soldiers’ relatives in the United States to see where their dead have been laid to rest.
The work is carried on under the auspices of the Jewish Welfare Board in the United States. The Jewish graves are distinctive, the headstones being surmounted by the Shield of David.
