  Jewish cemetery in Poltava, Ukraine

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

According to ESJF European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative, the cemetery emerged as a Jewish burial ground in the 1820-s. The site is marked as a Jewish cemetery on the topographic map of the 1860s. During  WWII, the site was badly damaged. After the war, a municipal cemetery was established in its place, with Jewish and Christian sections. There is a security guard at the entrance. The cemetery as a whole is fenced, but there is no internal fencing to demarcate the sections. There are about 1,500 gravestones. During the Lo Tishkach project expedition of 2016, the tombstone of presumably 1909 was found.  In 2019 ESJF team could not find it. 

Date of the oldest tombstone: 1946

Date of the latest tombstone: 2017

To reach the cemetery, start on Yosypa Hofmana Street, proceed east for 240 metres until the cemetery gate at the intersection of Yosypa Hofmana Street and Panfilova Street.
