See Berislav I for town information. The mass grave is located at west.
The earliest known Jewish community was mid-19th century. The unlandmarked Jewish mass grave was dug in 1941 for Berislav Jews only. The isolated suburban site has no sign or marker. Access is open to all. No wall, gate, or fence surrounds the mass grave. The approximate size is now 0.01 hectares. No stones were removed. The site contains unmarked mass graves. The municipality owns the property only used for mass burial site. Adjacent properties are commercial or industrial. Rarely, local residents visit. The mass grave was vandalized during World War II and occasionally in the last 10 years. There is no maintenance now. Within the limits of the mass grave are no structures. Vegetation overgrowth is a seasonal problem preventing access. Very serious threat: weather erosion, pollution, existing and proposed nearby development. Moderate threat: uncontrolled access, vegetation and vandalism. Other documentation was inaccessible.
