~ Verkhnye Vodyane Cemetery ~

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

The cemetery is located in a heavily overgrown area, no fence or gate.

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.
