Jewish Funerary Art
  New Jewish cemetery in Brody, Ukraine

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Khaimovich, Boris, 1993

According to ESJF European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative, the new Jewish cemetery of Brody was established in the 1830s by decree of the Austrian Government in connection with the cholera epidemic, which was the reason to close the old cemetery. It is one the most beautiful and well-preserved 19-th century Jewish cemeteries in Ukraine. It is famous for its stone carvings and poetic epitaphs. Presumably, the cemetery was operating until WWII. In the 1990s, the cemetery was partially catalogued by several expeditions. The cemetery is surrounded by a metal fence, 1.5 metres high. The fence and gate are in good condition. There are about 5,000 gravestones.

Date of oldest tombstone: 1830s
