Novovorontsovka Jewish Cemetery
None of the locals had heard of the Jewish cemetery, but the locals also said that once the village was larger and the river was much smaller. According to them, the river flooded several villages and half of Novovorontsovka (this happened around 1950-1953), it is likely that the cemetery was on the flooded part of the village.
Vysokopillya (Ukr. Високопілля, Rus. Высокополье, until 1915 Kronau, Ukr., Rus. Кронау) was founded as a Lutheran German agricultural colony in 1869. Jews probably joined the colony in the 1870’s. There were 139 Jews (19% of the total population) in the colony in 1897. According to the 2001 census, a few Jews (<10) lived in Vysokopillya and the neighbouring areas.
According to the 1994–95 survey of the Jewish Preservation Committee (KSEN), there were Jewish burials (possibly a Jewish section) in the German cemetery. Only a small part of the cemetery survives today, with no Jewish graves. It is not known whether the Jews had another cemetery of their own.
