The Center is building an online database of Jewish cemeteries in Turkey based on data collected by Prof. Rozen over the course of many years of research. Her collection includes over 100,000 photos of 60,000 gravestones from all over Turkey, dating from the sixteenth through twentieth centuries. This data will provide a unique portrait of the Jewish community living in Turkey during the sixteenth to twentieth centuries. Over the past year, the structure of the website has been built and nearly sixty percent of the photographs have been rescanned at high quality for inclusion on the website. In addition, Prof. Rozen prepared introductory texts on each of the different cemeteries and their histories, and these texts have been translated to English.
