ESJF starts projects in Ukrainian Transcarpathia

Ukrainian Transcarpathia straddling the borders with Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania has been a major focus of ESJF projects since 2015 with over 30 fencing projects completed in the region.

Jewish communities were present until the Shoah in almost every town and village in this mountainous area, and the density of Jewish cemeteries is possibly the greatest of any region in Europe.

The ESJF has launched fencing projects this week in the following Zakarpatia cemeteries: Chepa, Chornotysiv, Tekovo, Fanchikovo, Shyroke, Matiyovo, Nove Selo, Fertesholmash and Dyakovo in Vinogradiv rayon, Bohdan in Rakhiv rayon and the town of Perechin.
