The Jewish cemetery in Ipswich is being treated with such appalling disrespect, you cannot help but wonder if Ipswich suffers from an anti-semitic attitude.
(See 2019 update at the end of this post.)
The forgotten people of the world are many and varied however, some of them have left clues that remind us they were once here.
Some clues are celebrated and looked after well so that future generations can understand who they were and how they lived.
Others are hidden away and left to the ravages of time and, to the rough hand of modern man who, it seems, just wants to forget that some people were ever here.
And given the current state of the Jewish cemetery in Ipswich, one cannot help thinking that it suits Ipswich leaders to forget the role that Jews played in the development of the Ipswich economy.
