There is a very serene yet haunted quality to this picture. Where is this? Do you know the history of this spot?

MCAryeh & Jack: This picture is the remains of the Jewish cemetery that dates back to the 17th cemetery. Before 1941 it used to have a wall around it, however after the Holocaust local Ukrainians destroyed the wall and have used many of the tombstones to build their homes.

So sad....Are there any records of who was buried there?
