Kukeziv Jewish Cemetery
Drone survey :
Information on the cemetery’s establishment is not available. Presumably, it was operating until 1831. It can be supposed that it was demolished in the 1960s and later used as field. The Karaites, who received the approval to do so by Jan Sobieski in 1692, settled in Kukeziv. In the 17th century, the Karaite writer Mordechai Kukizov lived here. After 1831, the Karaites moved to Galich. The Jews resided here in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Nazi forces captured Kukeziv in summer 1941. In 1942, local Jews were deported to the ghetto in Novyy Yarychiv, where they were executed.
