Historical overview

According to sources, the Jewish section of the cemetery was opened in 1957 and closed in 1986. However, the earliest preserved tombstone dates back to the first half of the 20th century, and burials are still held at the site. Some graves were transferred to the site from Lukyanivs’ke cemetery.
