Jewish Cemetery in Velikiye Komyaty

 

The cemetery is located on Vatutina Street. There is a wall that was constructed around the perimeter of the cemetery with money donated by survivors from the town. Most of the stones that were placed there prior to WWII were removed and used for building purposes. Approximately 85 stones remained, some in poor condition. Prior to our visit to the cemetery, the tall, overgrown weeds were cut and the stones were cleaned. The engravings were enhanced by the application of a type of paint that has since washed off. This facilitated the reading and photographing of the stones. There is a caretaker who lives across the street from the cemetery. He has the keys to the gate.

Translations of writings on matzaivah (memorial monuments) are needed. Please volunteer to assist in this process. Contact rsolit@comcast.net
