Historical overview

The exact period of the Jewish cemetery’s establishment is unknown. However, given it can be found marked on Russian maps of the region from the 1880s, it was most likely founded in the 19th century. The cemetery was also mentioned in the Radyvyliv Yizkor memorial book issued in 1966 and marked on the map therein. According to ESJF data, it was demolished in the 1950s and built over at a later date.
