The online project Jewish Cementaries in Brandenburg documents the Jewish Cementaries in the federal state of Brandenburg, with the goal of a comprehensive documentation of all those cementaries. The documented cementaries are accessible to the public on the project's website and database, which is continuously expanded.

A brochure about the Jewish cementary in Potsdam was published by the university press: „Spurensuche auf dem Jüdischen Friedhof Potsdam. Eine Handreichung für den Unterricht“. It's the result of a project, that was sponsored in 2015&2016 by the foundation „Erinnerung, Verantwortung und Zukunft“. It gave pupils of the Humboldt-Gymnasium in Potsdam the opportunity to learn about the Jewish heritage of their city.

The book is available via book trade, as well as free download on the publication server of Potsdam University.
