Information on the cemetery’s establishment is not known. Presumably, the cemetery was operating from the end of 19th until the early 20th century. It can be supposed that it was partially demolished after WWII. Little is known about the Jewish community of Univ. In 1880, 71 Jews were residing in Univ. The family of the Polish-American theoretical chemist who won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, Roald Hoffmann, escaped here during the Holocaust. There is information about the righteous Gentile of Univ, Mykola Dyuk, who hid Jews during the Nazi occupation.
