Jewish cemetery in Obertyn restored

Good news from Ukraine. In July 2017 Bohdan Stanislavsky, a businessman in Obertyn near Kolomyia, restored and commemorated the Jewish cemetery. Stanislavsky is an owner of the former kolkhoz built by the soviets on the land where the Jewish cemetery once stood. In  the course of  restoration works, a barn was destroyed. Dozens of tombstones which supported construction of the barn were brought back to the cemetery.

Opening of the memorial was celebrated on July 12th together with rabbi Koleshnik from Ivano-Frankivsk, municipality and local residents.
