Town Finder: Where is My Jewish Cemetery?

The database of Jewish cemeteries and mass graves in western Ukraine on this website is divided into three pages by oblasts (regions/provinces), because the number of these burial sites is too great to reasonably manage and list on a single page. Some people who are interested in learning about the status of Jewish burial sites where their ancestors lived may not know the oblast in which their town or village is currently located, and may not know the current name of the place in official transliteration from Ukrainian to English. The list of towns and villages below alphabetizes all of the places with identified Jewish cemeteries and/or mass graves in western Ukraine for easy browsing, identifies the current raion (district) and oblast of each place, and in the name of the oblast gives a direct link to the burial sites database page on this website where more information can be found: GPS coordinates and map links to the burial sites, plus links to external websites which in most cases provide some site history as well as recent photos. With the correct current spelling of place names, it’s also possible to search this website (in the menu above) to see whether we’ve discussed or illustrated features of the cemetery or mass grave there.

Not all places in western Ukraine where Jews lived have burial sites, of course; smaller villages and towns with small Jewish populations before World War II typically buried their dead in Jewish cemeteries in the nearest town with a larger Jewish community. To determine the locations of ancestral towns and villages in western Ukraine which are not on this list, or to learn the current name and location of places remembered by their Polish, German, or Yiddish names, genealogical databases are useful, especially the Gesher Galicia Town Locator (which covers western Ukraine and southeastern Poland) and the JewishGen Communities Database (which covers the world).
