Cemetery in Halych before construction

The Jewish cemetery is located outside of town, a long walk into a farmer’s field. ESJF surveyors found it severely overgrown. The day after Passover 5704 (16 April 1944), the general round-up of all Halych’s Jews began. They were taken to the ghetto, where they remained for about a month before being transported to Auschwitz.
