We are pleased to announce the completion of the new fence at the Jewish cemetery of Mynay in Ukrainian Transcarpathia

Prior to the Shoah, Uzhhorod was one of the prime centres of Jewish life in Ukrainian Transcarpathia, with numerous Jewish communities once existing in what are now the city’s suburbs.

Mynay in Uzhhorod raion had its own cemetery once. However, in the wake of World War II it was abandoned and left to become derelict. It took a month’s work and 10 trucks to remove all the refuse from the cemetery, but we are pleased to say the site is now clean and well-maintained.
