  Jewish cemetery in Zakharivka, Ukraine

© ESJF European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative, Photographer: ESJF European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative, 2019

According to ESJF European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative, the cemetery already existed in 1851, as evident from tombstone dating. It is marked as Jewish on a Russian topographic map from 1941. It seems that most of the tombstones from the old part of the cemetery were removed from the site, probably for construction purposes. The cemetery has a post-WWII part, which was used until 1982. The cemetery is abandoned. Its old part is used for cattle grazing, and a post-WWII part of the cemetery is overgrown with bushes. There are around 200 gravestones. There is an old plot on which mainly only gravestone bases without inscriptions are preserved, and a post-WWII plot, which is well-preserved, but severely overgrown. There is one metal cross at the cemetery without inscription (probably a Christian grave of post-WWII period).

Date of oldest tombstone: 1851
Date of newest tombstone: 1982
