Velka Ida,Eastern Slovakia


US Commission No. SLCE000091

Velka Ida is located SE of Kosice. The isolated rural/agricultural flat land has no sign or marker. Reached by turning directly off a public road, access is open to all via a broken masonry wall without gate. 20-100 18th-20th century marble, granite, limestone, and sandstone flat shaped tombstones or finely smoothed and Hebrew inscribed stones are in original locations. Some have carved relief decorations. Adjacent properties are agricultural. Occasionally, private visitors stop. Occasionally, individuals clean and clear the site. Within the cemetery is a pre-burial house. Pollution is a moderate threat; vegetation and vandalism are serious threats.

Twelve gravestones were vandalized at the Jewish cemetery.Click here for the full article.
