 Thanks to Daniel Goldberg, (paternal grandparents - Harry Goldberg & Chaike Sokol - both born in Boyarka), we have pictures of the
that is in the Boyerker Benevolent Society section of the Beth David Cemetery. Beth David Cemetery is located at 300   
 Elmont Road, Elmont, New York. The monument lists the names of
the many people who were murdered in the pogroms of 1918, 1919,
 1920 and 1921. The following photos are just a few, of the many, that Dan took at the Boyerker section of the cemetery.
I have created
 a list of all the names that appear on the monument. (Go to Databases Page)

Click on photo for an enlarged view.
pic6 The monuments are inscribed
in both Hebrew and in English.
pic9   "These are the names of   our people who were brutally murdered in the
pogrom of 1918 (5678) in the town of Boyerka, Cull of Zvenigrodka, Russia."

pic16 In this photo you can see that the names of those killed weren't always given or known. "Bentziys son in law" and "Levi the Shames" are examples. pic18 More names from the pogrom of
           1921 (5781)

pic10 In this photo, we again see that full names are not given. "Sarah and 2 sons" and "2 daughter in laws & 2 children" are engraved in the monument. pic13
