Work is underway at the Chumal’ovo Jewish Cemetery in Zakarpattia, Ukraine

Work is underway at the Chumal’ovo Jewish Cemetery. This week our construction workers have managed to make progress despite the deep snow in the Carpathian Mountains. When the ESJF arrived at the Chumal’ovo Jewish cemetery in Zakarpattia, Ukraine, it was severely overgrown and required clearing and fencing. Most of the gravestones on the site were broken apart from 3. The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown, but it can be assumed that the cemetery emerged in the 19th century as the earliest preserved gravestone dates back to 1847 and it first appeared on the cadastral maps of 1865.
