Vandals in Western Ukraine Used Jewish Gravestones To “Repair” the Road

Translated by Ollie Richardson


Unknown vandals removed gravestones from the graves of a Jewish cemetery in Kamianets-Podilskyi and laid them on the road to the river.

Users on social networks reported about it, having supported the post with a photo. As it became clear, this is not the first instance of this happening in Kamianets-Podilskyi.

Previously in the cemetery there were many more gravestones, but recently they began to vanish. According to locals, the gravestones are used for the “construction needs” of those who feel they need them.

At the moment it is unknown whether someone contacted the police about this and whether these facts of vandalism are being investigated. Users of social networks suggested to address Jewish organizations that will be able to obtain a proper response from the authorities and the police.
