~ Keretsky Cemetery ~

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

The cemetery is located just across a bridge and up the hillside. There is an iron-bar fence---a work of art---around the perimeter of the cemetery and cement steps to climb to the gate, halfway up the hill. Every stone remaining was broken off near its base.

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 listed, but many other village cemeteries of the Zakarpats'ka oblast are not listed.
