ESJF special project now underway at iconic Kremenets Jewish cemetery

Construction of a perimeter fence specially designed to replicate the original wall at this site in Western Ukraine is now underway. This large site, with one of the largest and oldest collection of existing gravestones in Ukraine, has remained unfenced and largely neglected for many years. Kremenets was one of the centres of Jewish life in Ukrainian Galicia until the Shoah with recorded Jewish settlement in Krements dating from the 14th century and references to the cemetery from as early as 1563. We are grateful for the suppport and encouragement of Kremenets town council and Mayor Olexiy Kovalchuk and Vice-Mayor Mykola Matviyuk. Construction at the site is expected to be completed by the end of the summer.
