Jewish cemetery clean-up summer camp @ Jewish cemetery Chernivtsi | Chernivtsi | Chernivets'ka oblast | Ukraine

The 10th anniversary of this “summer camp” for people aged 40 and over, initiated in 2009..

A main part is volunteer clean-up in the vast Jewish cemetery, which with 50,000 graves, is one of the largest preserved Jewish cemeteries in Europe, damaged in some areas and largely neglected. Participants will pull up weeds and undergrowth, clear overgrown paths between the graves and discover forgotten inscriptions on the gravestones.
