Bocki

 

GPS: 5239'N 2303'E

Size: -

Number of matzevoth: 0 (part of concrete wall; possibly one base)

Bagnowka.com: Bocki Gallery (photographed in 1987; 2006)

Directions: From Bialystok, take highway 19 south (through Bielsk Podlaski) for 64 km to the small town of Bocki. In town, beside the white church on the left (east), is a fragment from the masonry wall of the old Jewish cemetery (Images 2-4). Continue on highway 19. Just before you cross the Nurzec River, to the right and adjacent to the river, are the remains of a Jewish miqveh (ritual bath) (Image 1). Passing through town, the first road to the right, on the road to Jakubowskie, should be the remnants of the old Jewish cemetery (wall and one matzevah). The new Jewish cemetery could not be located in May 2007, but see Bagnowka gallery for images.
