~ Korolevo Cemetery ~

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

The Jewish cemetery is located in the town, along a road. It has a wall built around it and there is a caretaker who has the key to the door. The cemetery is well-maintained.

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 in the Zakarpats'ka oblast.
