In Warsaw, youths rescue Europe's largest Jewish cemeteryWielding axes, rakes and shears, young European volunteers with sweat on their brows have been sprucing up the continent's largest Jewish cemetery, a Warsaw site largely neglected since the Holocaust. "At the cemetery's entrance, the pathways are rather well kept and the graves well preserved, but the rest of it, like this spot here, is more of a jungle," says volunteer Stanislaw Knapowski. Over nine days last month, he cleared the cemetery grounds with around 60 other volunteers from a dozen countries, among them Belarusians, Danes, Finns, Germans and Spaniards.
