Kam’yanets’-Podil’s’kyy Zin’kivtsi Jewish Cemetery
The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. First, it appears on old maps of the 1920s, and, later, it was marked on Polish and Russian maps of 1939.
Zin’kivtsi became a part of Kamyanets-Podils’kyy in the 20th century. In 1789, 161 Jews were inhabitants of Zin’kivtsi. By 1887, the Jewish population grew to 350 (36,8% of the total). In the 19th century, two synagogues operated. Jews were mainly engaged in craft by that time. Emil Krotky (1892 – 1963), a poet, satirist and feuilletonist, was born in the Zin’kivtsi.
