Kodnya Jewish Cemetery
According to the Commission on the Preservation of Jewish Heritage, the earliest found gravestone dated to 1912. It can therefore be said that it was established no later than the early 20th century. The cemetery is not marked on maps.
Jews are first mentioned in Kodnya (Ukr., Rus. Кодня, Yid. קאָדניע) in 1593. The community was destroyed during the Chmielnicki uprising of 1648–49 and reemerged in the 18th century. In 1897, the Jewish population of Kodnya was 688 (27% of the town). At that time the community maintained a prayer house. During the Civil War of 1918–21, the Jews were attacked in a number of pogroms and subsequently the Jewish population declined in the interwar period. A Jewish village Soviet was established in Kodnya in the 1920s. After the arrival of the Germans, the Jews of Kodnya were murdered in August 1941.
According to the 1994–95 survey, by the Jewish Preservation Committee (KSEN), the oldest tombstone was dated to 1912. Few of the tombstones are identifiable today. According to local residents, some of the stones were used for construction in the 1960s.
