~ Chepa Cemetery ~

Jewish families that lived in Chepa, and possibly other nearby villages, used the Chepa cemetery as the final resting place for their loved ones.

The Jewish cemetery is located outside of town along a dirt road. It seemed maintained in the past.

In the documents section of the "Other" tab, you will find a link to a U.S. Commission Report completed in 2005 that attempted to document Jewish Cemeteries (and Synagogues and Mass Grave Sites) in Ukraine. This cemetery is not listed as well as many other village cemeteries of the Zakarpats'ka oblast.
