  Jewish Cemetery in Ucea de Jos, Romania

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Levin, Vladimir, 9.2019

Ucea de Jos is a medium-sized village on the shore of the Olt River. There were 16 Jews in 1900 and 13 in 1910 (Rotariu, Traian, Maria Semeniuc, and Elemer Mezei. Recensământul din 1900. Transilvania. Bucharest: Editura Staff, 1999. P. 211; Idem. Recensământul din 1910. Transilvania. Bucharest: Editura Staff, 1999. P. 201).

Its Jewish cemetery is part of a private backyard in the vicinity of the Christian cemetery. There are 19 tombstones in the cemetery. In the way characteristic to Transylvania, the stones from the second half of the 19th century are traditional stelae with a rounded upper part, while the stones of the early 20th century are obelisks. Almost all gravestones have epitaphs both in Hebrew and Hungarian.
