The Berezhany cemetery is located on high ground on the outskirts of the city. Previous to my visit I had seen photos of goats grazing among the tombstones, and when I arrived in the fall of 2006, there were in fact two elderly women tending a small herd of goats. It appeared that they were the most frequent visitors to the cemetery. The Berezhany cemetery was also a mass murder and burial site during the Shoah.

When I last visited the former synagogue in Berezhany had been reduced to approximately two standing walls.
