  • This is a view of the entrance to the old cemetery, no wall, no gate, no stones visible here. Some one probably buried them deep in the ground so they could cut the shrubs to use as fodder for their animals. As can be seen part of the shrubs have been cut for fodder. Below is the main road Chernivtsi-Khotin towards the right is a gas station bordering with the cemetery. In the background can be seen part of the buildings of town Klishkivtsi. The only fenced in part of the cemetery by neighbors. Who probably live on part of the old Jewish cemetery. And would probably want to annex the land of the old Jewish cemetery for agricultural purposes. As can be seen some one cut the shurbs to use as fodder for amimals. Another picture of hardly visible burial stones at the old cemetery.
