ZHVANETS: (Podolia Province)
Two Jewish cemeteries exist. The town's mayor notes that the Jewish cemetery inside Zhvanets was filled in 1900 and a new cemetery started north of the town. The "new" one was forgotten since 1943 after the Jews were exterminated. Recently, the town did a survey to develop the land and found about 1,500 gravestones with Hebrew inscriptions. Now a group is organizing a project to photograph, translate and document the data for genealogical purposes. Source: Arthur Halpern; Holon, Israel.
