Užupis Old Jewish Cemetery (Užupio Senosios Žydų Kapinės)

 Krivių Vilnius Lithuania     24 Oct 2016

Founded in 1828 at around the same time as the city’s original Jewish cemetery in Šnipiškės was closed, the Užupis Old Jewish Cemetery survived until after the war when it was destroyed by the authorities and its gravestones, along with the gravestones from the Šnipiškės cemetery, used in the construction of several building projects in the city. Now little more than a few broken stones on the side of a steep hill with a couple more on the top, a large memorial marks the site. To find it, turn left from Olandų onto Krivių and it’s a few metres up on the left.
