Jewish history[edit]

Jews settled in Ananyiv since the 19th century. In 1820, the Jewish community in town owned a synagogue and a cemetery,[2] which no longer exists, though the new cemetery from the 20th century can be visited.[3] The Surnames on the gravestones are still visible and documented online.[4] Photos of the town Jews from the beginning of the 20th century are also visible online.[5] In April 1887, a mob attacked and destroyed 175 Jewish homes and 14 shops.[3] In 1897, 50% of the town population was Jewish.[6] During 1919, two pogroms in town resulted in more than 40 dead Jews.[6] Under Nazi occupation, more than 330 of the town Jews were killed by Einsatzgruppen 10b.[7] On October 1941, 300 out of the 445 left town. Jews were murdered in nearby Mostove, and the rest a month later in Gvozdiovka. One of these two mass graves is signed[8] in Ukrainian and open to public.[9] In 1990, 30 Jews lived in Ananyiv.[3]

On this site 1500 Jews were killed by the Eisentzgrupen during the Holocaust
