Burial places, in particular cemeteries, are the most visible public remains of a community’s history. As public documents of human occupation, cemeteries serve as records of a community’s roots. They not only embody the community’s history but also are proof of its member’s pride of place. They provide evidence of the struggles to continue on in the face of adversity from generation to generation.
The communities that truly values its heritage will make a strong fight to ensure its future.
