Cemetery in Kozelets before construction

Located in the central Ukrainian region of Chernihiv, the community in Kozelets developed throughout the 18th and 19th centuries and still has a few Jewish families living in the town. The site showed recent evidence of desecration with rubbish across the area and encroaching utilisation of land for agricultural purposes immediately adjacent to the cemetery.
