Interested in seeing what cleaning up an abandoned Jewish cemetery looks like?

The Lviv Volunteer Center has posted this brief video of the October 12 clean-up action at the Jewish cemetery in Kalush, Ukraine, which took place with the participation of Peace Corps volunteers and Rohatyn Jewish Heritage. The action was organized by a  Peace Corps volunteer in Kalush, Patty Deignan, in cooperation with the Kalush city administration. Volunteers worked at both the town’s Jewish cemetery and then the general Christian cemetery.

  1. It was a great pleasure to work again with Peace Corps volunteers stationed in Ukraine and the Lviv Volunteer Center. We thank Patty Deignan for initiating the project, which successfully partnered with the City of Kalush, the schools, Jewish descendants, and activists in western Ukraine.
