General site condition
As related to ESJF surveyors by a local resident. She said that there was a cemetery at the location because she said she saw a few tombstones there. Another woman’s late husband built a barn after WWII on one side of the cemetery. There appears to be the base of a tombstone inside the barn. When the woman died, she left the house and the land to her sister’s son from Zagreb. One time, a neighbour ploughed the field and came across the remains of a cemetery. The neighbour was told of the cemetery and ceased to plough there. Today, there are bushes and nettles behind the barn and it is impossible to see if there are any gravestones at all. The excess vegetation in the area should be cleared in order o identify any possible remaining gravestones.

Historical overview

The Voloder Jewish Cemetery was established in 1860 and was in use until 1873. The cemetery no longer exists today. That cemetery was also used by the Jewish community of Kutina.

Voloder is a village in Sisak-Moslavina County. It was first recorded on a 1773 map as “Dorf Voloder.” In the early 19th century, it was under French rule for a short time and then became a part of the Habsburg Empire. The settlement had 715 inhabitants in 1857 and 1,553 inhabitants in 1910. The region was well-known as a centre for agricultural production. Nothing is known about the local Jewish community.
