Sokoliv Jewish Cemetery
The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. It was established no later than the first half of the 20th century, as the earliest preserved tombstone dates to 1923.
Jews first settled in Sokoliv (Ukr. Соколів, Rus. Соколов) in the mid-18th century. In 1897, 239 Jews lived in Sokoliv, which was 31% of the town. The Jewish community maintained a prayer house. In the 1920s, the Jewish population had grown to around 500. The Jews who had failed to evacuate in the summer of 1941, were murdered after the arrival of the Germans.
The exact date of the establishment of the cemetery is unknown, however the earliest tombstone dates back to 1923.
