  Jewish cemetery in Okny, Ukraine

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

According to ESJF European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative, the information on the cemetery’s establishment is not known, but it was marked on a Russian maps of 1914 and 1916-17. Presumably, the cemetery was operating in the 19th century. The earliest gravestone found by ESJF dates from the 1860s. Presumably, the cemetery was demolished after WWII. Since 1995, the cemetery has been almost fully demolished, and almost all gravestones are destroyed. There are around 200 gravestones. About a dozen gravestones with Russian inscriptions, dating from 1919 to 1977, are in good condition. Remnants of older gravestone are hidden in the bushes. 

Date of oldest tombstone: 1860s
Date of newest tombstone: 1950
