  Jewish section in the municipal cemetery in Polohy, Ukraine

According to ESJF European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative, the exact period of the cemetery's establishment is unknown. Given that the oldest preserved tombstone dates to the mid 20th century, it can be gathered the Jewish sector was founded in that era. It cannot be found marked on old maps of the region. The Local history museum in Polohy has an old tombstone from this sector. The entire territory of the cemetery, including the Jewish one, is fenced off. There are approximately 500 gravestones. There are several Christian burials in the Jewish sector. 

Date of the oldest tombstone: 1943

Date of the latest tombstone: 2009

To reach the cemetery, start from 9, Peschany Lane, drive northeast for 60m, then turn left and continue for another 180m. Behind the church on the left hand side there is an entrance to the municipal cemetery. The Jewish section is on the right hand side.
