Gelénes (near the Tisza River in Szobolsz County, Satmar region) had Jews until the Holocaust when most were taken to the death camps. Ukraine border is five km away. I found the remains of the Jewish cemetery near the Public Works Garage on the outskirts of town. The area was heavily weeded. The few stones that I saw were lying flat. I think I actually was at the site of what had been the Jewish Cemetery of Gelenes until 1944. Some Jews from Barabash may have been buried. Submitted by Norman L.
