    If you are interested in Ukrainian / Jewish history, this is definitely a good place to visit. This cemetery is a bit off the beaten tourist path of Chernivtsi, but well worth the walk (or taxi ride)....  more »

    Unfortunately it turned well if not ruins, 20 more years and it will be. Do not argue, try and clean and refine, but Vandalism. How does this not steal all the Iron Guard, and, for one night, or check for gold teeth from the dead? It's about sad ... Ohoroshem, whatever you may say, but Chernivtsi Jews about their rodichah, even after death, Taki Yes but cared. Some Crypts almost architectural monuments. Go and see it on the fan, but nevertheless worth
