~ Zhnyatyno Cemetery ~

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

The cemetery is located on the left side of a farm road that runs off the main road a few kilometers past the commercial part of the town (2 stores). From the main road, turn left onto the farm road which runs along a cornfield that is on the right. The cemetery is about 300 feet from the main road. On the right side of the road in the distance you can see the steeple of the Orthodox church and if you get to a Christian cemetery on the left side of the road, you've gone a bit too far. Enter the Jewish cemetery by walking a short distance on a path of vegetation that emerges into the cemetery proper.

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.
