Full indexed catalog of the Old Jewish Cemetery in Suceava is online now

The Jewish community of Suceava is one of the oldest Jewish communities in Bukovina. A unique cultural monument of Bukovinian Jewry has been preserved here - the first community cemetery served as the resting place for several generations of Jews from Suceava and the surrounding area from the 17th to the end of the 19th centuries.

Based on our association’s fieldwork results, we compiled a complete catalog of all the monuments preserved in this cemetery: about 740 tombstones, the oldest from 1767 (i.e., before the Austrian annexation). You can view the catalog here. Photographs of the most artistically significant monuments are collected in a particular gallery:  Bukovinian bestiary: Masterpieces of Jewish Stone Carving at Suceava Old Jewish Cemetery
