GELENES: Szobolsz County, Satmar Region Print


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.
