~ Veryatsya Cemetery ~

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

The Jewish cemetery was located in the town. The property is now an orchard and no Jewish tombstones remain, however there are three Schwab tombstones outside the fenced area, next to the road.

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.
