Rededication ceremony held at the recently fenced Jewish cemetery in Verba, Rivne Oblast, Ukraine

The new fence at the Jewish cemetery of Verba was erected by the ESJF in April 2017, with the support of the Federal Republic of Germany, in memory of Jews from Verba and the surrounding areas, who were murdered during the Shoah. A ceremony of rededication was held on May 16th, 2017 and was attended by brothers and Verba descendants, Avrom Bendavid-Val and Marvin Bendavid (USA), who worked for the protection of this cemetery and its graves for many years. The ceremony was also attended by ESJF Education Projects Coordinator Natalia Videneeva, who also introduced ESJF education projects into the local schools.
