For three weeks, local residents cleaned and tidied up the Ananyiv Jewish cemetery. The local cemetery is in a very dilapidated condition, many graves and tombstones have been destroyed.


Vladimir Sedov, the deputy of the Ananievsky regional council told about it on his Facebook page.

According to him, sand was brought to the cemetery, about 12 trucks of garbage and tree branches were taken out, and a large number of bushes that were cluttering the graves were cut down. And also planted 18 pine trees, which were brought from Uman.

The Jewish cemetery in Ananiev has existed since the last century. Once this city was a county town of Kherson province. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, 20% of Jews lived there. The Jewish population was engaged in the manufacture of clothing and trade. According to historians, there were 5 synagogues in Ananiev that existed before 1930. However, numerous strikes by the Soviet authorities, and later the executions of the German occupiers, led to the almost complete extermination of the Jewish population.

1837 - there was a Hebrew of Kaddish
1899 - the Union of Aid to the Poor
1893 - the Jewish State School and a private Jewish women's school
1906 - the Union of Aid to Poor Jewish Craftsmen
1903 - the Union of Aid to Needy Students
1912 - the Jewish Savings and Loan company
