Fence construction of Varkovychi Jewish Cemetery in Rivne Oblast, Ukraine almost completed

The Jewish cemetery in Varkovychi has matzevot dating from the late 19th century. In the first half of the 20th century, the cemetery was abandoned and over time overgrown with trees. The ESJF defined the cemetery borders and engaged in this project, with the added difficulties of dealing with the 10-degree gradient and the existing embankment and ditch on its edges.

The next stage – erection of the fence around the cemetery – began in autumn, 2016. As of today the territory of the burial site is cleared of debris, all excess vegetation is chopped down and the construction of the fence is now in the final stage. Special thanks to ESJF Chief Engineer Hryhoriy Arshynov, who has worked for the restoration and fence erection around the cemetery.
