Museum of Sub-Carpathian Jewry

Plans are underway to establish a Museum of Sub-Carpathian Jewry in Berehove (Beregszász), to memorialize the Jewish population and their contributions to pre and post-war Sub-Carpathia, Ukraine.

Our plan is to advertise and canvass the residents of Sub-Carpathia today, for items left behind by the Jews after the deportations in 1944 and by any survivors who emigrated, post-1945. This includes religious items found in former synagogues, prayer houses, private homes in the cities, towns and villages of Sub-Carpathia.

Realizing that your ancestors may have sent items abroad that may still be your possession, we would ask your consideration to donating items from your Jewish Sub-Carpathian family, to memorialize your family that once lived here.

If anyone has something of interest, please contact us with a full description of the item(s) for mailing or shipping information.

Progress of the work on the museum:

  • Space has been allocated for the museum in the second floor of the synagogue.
  • Space has been allocated for a computer room and a place for the museum monitor.
  • Museum is fully operational now with many interesting items on display.
  • Photos of the museum are presented below.
  • Additional updates to follow...
