This small town, near Ivano-Frankivsk (Stanislow), is my maternal grandmother's ancestral shtetl.  With this page, I wish to pay my respects to her and her family, to those I knew and those I did not, to those who came to America and to those who remained behind and perished in the Holocaust. sign 2001
sign 2007 There is a new sign for Bukachevtsy, certainly an improvement.

I visited Bukachevtsy in May 2001 and again in June 2007.  There's not much left to tell you that Bukachevtsy once had a sizable Jewish population.  There are no Jews and practically no Jewish buildings.  Even the cemetery was largely destroyed.  The Jews of Bukachevtsy exist only in our memories.  If you have memories to share or ties to Bukachevtsy, please contact me.

Cemetery in Bukachevtsy   

The cemetery, which still stood relatively intact at the end of World War II (by eyewitness account of survivors), was destroyed by the Soviet Union.  The ground is mostly empty and there are a few remnants of tombstones left.  But the undergrowth is so heavy that it is all but impossible to know exactly what remains. 

Several years ago we arranged to complete a fence around the cemetery. Unfortunately the fence is now being knocked down by overgrowth of trees and bushes. Please contact the webmaster if you are interested in more information and in contributing to this effort.
