ESJF special project completed at Mala Dobron Jewish cemetery in Ukrainian Transcarpathia

Jewish cemetery in Mala Dobron in Ukrainian Transcarpathia was in the focus of ESJF’s special attention for one particular reason — the neighborhood with the Christian cemetery. These cemeteries existed at a short distance from each other for decades. Yet after the Shoah the Jewish cemetery was abandoned and vastly neglected, therefore there was a risk of total disappearance of the cemetery.

The need of precise and accurate demarcation of Jewish and Christian cemeteries required from ESJF monitors special caution. After long and thorough surveying the Jewish cemetery was separated and fenced with metal mesh and stone gabion. Now it represents a vivid example of a clear demarcation of Jewish and Christian graves and a respectful attitude towards non-Jewish graves.
