  Jewish cemetery in Berezivka, Ukraine

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

According to ESJF European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative, the cemetery was founded in the late 19th or early 20th century. Tombstones from 1915 to 1918 are preserved on the site. Among them there is a tombstone of a man “killed by anarchists in 1918”. The cemetery is marked on a Russian topographic map from 1927, using data from the 1910s. The cemetery was ruined during WWII, but some pre-war tombstones are preserved. The cemetery was used until the 1990s. 

There are remains of a small building near the cemetery, which was described by the 2009 expedition of Lo Tishkach as a ruined beit-taharah. According to locals, there is no mass grave on the cemetery site, but the ESJF expedition has found a small hill with a stone on it, although it is unclear whether this is a mass grave. Locals state that vandals ruin the cemetery. There are 30 unbroken tombstones and many fragments of broken tombstones.

Date of oldest tombstone: 1915
Date of newest tombstone: 1989
 
To reach the cemetery, proceed from 133, Tanaschyshyna Street on the dirt road for around 70 metres up to the hill.
