A world that has been gone

A new challenge at CSI, special case file S365-9:
And this is my take on this case file: 
My clues were:
Scheme - all 5 colors are here.
Evidence - leaves/branches, music elements, mist, hearts, fence, scatter something (scattered Stars of David),.
Testimony - I documented about a journey I had recently to Poland. this photo was taken at the old Jewish Cemetery in Warsaw. I wrote my journaling right on the background, and it reads: "A journey in time, to a world that has been and don't exist anymore. Great communities, enriched colture, a varied world, fuul of content. The Jewish Cemetery at Warsaw, a very big one, full of old tombstones, that tell the story of people who lived and contributed to their people, as much as to their country. A cemetery with so much sorrow in it, with a monument for 1.5 million jewish children, who were murdered by the Nazis."
It also goes fot the 'Good 'ol Days' challenge at Simon Says Stamp & Show.
Here are some close-ups on the details:

Thank you for taking the time and visiting my blog. I appreciate your comments very much.

ככה מעצבים עמוד אלבום!
כשהעיצוב הוא לא רק יפה אלא ממש מעצים את הרגש והרעיון שעומדים מאחורי .התמונה ומעביר אותם לקדמת הבמה
והכותרת - מדהימה (ולא בגלל המדבקות, אלא בזכות הטקסט).

Ah Libeeti, I know it would have be a very sad and emotional trip for you. It affected me badly and I am not jewish so I can't even begin to think what it must have been like for you. I hope you got what you were looking for. Can't wait to hear all about it. Take care and thank you for sharing this beautiful and heart wrenching layout with us.
