Czernowitz, Jewish cemetery
An international work camp took place in the Ukrainian city of Chernivtsi - the former Czernowitz - in August 2008. Volunteers from Poland, Germany, Sweden, Italy, Switzerland, France, Australia and the USA cleaned up the Jewish cemetery. They were joined by locals and the city authorities supported them by community workers, free hosting, advice and transport.
The work camp was organized by SVIT Ukraine and supported by SCI Germany.
The Jewish cemetery of Czernowitz is one of the last undestroyed Jewish cemeteries in eastern Europe. Neglected since decades the cemetery is overgrown by weeds, bushes, creeppers and trees. The volunteers brought parts of this gem into daylight again.
