One of the inscriptions on one of the restored houses in the Jewish Quarter of Berea.  It is a quote from Psalm 137:5:

If I forget you
O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget [its skill]
Year 5619 [of the Hebrew Calendar = 1859 CE]

In 1943 there were about 850 Jews in Berea.  They were deported and annihilated by the Nazis.
