Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. There is no information available about  the Jewish cemetery here.

No information is available about aJewish community in Fedorivka (Ukr. Федорівка, Rus. Федоровка, in 1960–2016 Chubarivka, Ukr. Чубарівка, Rus. Чубаревка). Jews from the nearby colony of Krasnoselka (Krasnoselivka) were protected by the peasants of Fedorivka during the pogroms of 1882.

The only Jewish tombstone was found by a local resident in her garden in the 2010’s. The discovery was a complete surprise as nobody in the village had ever heard of a Jewish cemetery there. The stone, dating to 1902, is now at the museum in Polohy.
