Jewish history

Jews settled in Ananyiv since the 19th century. In 1820, the Jewish community in town owned a synagogue and a cemetery,[1] which no longer exists, though the new cemetery from the 20th century can be visited.[2] The Surnames on the gravestones are still visible and documented online.[3] Photos of the town Jews from the beginning of the 20th century are also visible online.[4] In April 1887, a mob attacked and destroyed 175 Jewish homes and 14 shops.[2] In 1897, 50% of the town population was Jewish.[5] During 1919, two pogroms in town resulted in more than 40 dead Jews.[5] Under Nazi occupation, more than 330 of the town Jews were killed by Einsatzgruppen 10b.[6] On October 1941, 300 out of the 445 left town Jews were murdered in nearby Mostove, and the rest a month later in Gvozdiovka. One of these two mass graves is signed[7] in Ukrainian and open to public.[8] In 1990, 30 Jews lived in Ananyiv.[2]
