Residents, except for a small number of retired staff and senior officers , merchants and petty bourgeoisie , composed of employees , of whom the number is assumed to 20 thousand people, and Sevastopol have a real military town - so he wrote his visiting 1802 Sumarokov [1].


With the growth of the Black Sea fleet increased demand for working hands for the construction of ports , barracks, fortifications to protect the fleet , homes for families of officers , officials, merchants, and this has stimulated an influx of population . In 1853 , the beginning of the Crimean War , the population of Sevastopol has reached 42-45 thousand people [ 2].Along with Russian and Ukrainians lived in Sevastopol the Germans , Greeks, Armenians , Bulgarians , Karaite Jews, Krymchaks , Italians, Czechs , Estonians and others


At this time there were three in the town cemetery , two Orthodox and Jewish ( a Jewish ) cemetery at the height of the head in the Sugar Siltings [3].During the first defense of Sevastopol, this height was subjected to intensive artillery and rifle fire , as it were on lodgements Russian gunners, and a small cemetery was completely destroyed.


During the heroic 349- day defense of Sevastopol has been destroyed.In the first months of retirement from Anglo-French troops in the city began to return a few residents, but city life for a long time stood still. In 1861, the population of Sevastopol was only 4,500, that is one tenth of the prewar population of the city [4]. The city revived very slowly : in 1869 there were 5 .747 residents in 1875 - 12. 000, 1885 - 25. 000 ( the military ) in 1895 - 47. 683 people , 30 of them . 560 civilian . National Population Census in 1897 showed that the city had 45. 801 persons of the civilian population , of whom 6.5% were Jews (2195 persons) [5]. In the future, the Jewish population in the city did not exceed 6-7%.


A Place in the new Jewish cemetery was given immediately after the Crimean War in 1856. City Council it was decided to arrange a national cemetery next to the Orthodox cemetery in the area of ​​the beam.But in 1897 the Jewish community appealed to the Sebastopol City Council with a request for land for expansion prirezke cemetery as a place near ... Chersonesus road the cemetery is now almost all the graves already occupied [6]. Jewish, Karaite and Muslim ( Mohammedan ) cemeteries were located in the northwest mountains Rudolf .Jewish cemetery bordered on the Karaite . For the first time in the Jewish cemetery Rudolf mountains were deposited on a master plan for Sebastopol in 1887. The earliest surviving burial dates back to 1866.


great monuments of the Jewish cemetery damage caused earthquake September 12, 1927 , when it was destroyed most of the monuments and high rainfall , which took place in Sevastopol, September 1, 1928 .Cemetery and operated after the Second World War, however, the decision of the Executive Committee of the Sevastopol City Council to March 1, 1965 The Jewish and Karaite located near were closed [7]. Burials began to produce in the town cemetery , but with its closure in 1969 - at the new municipal cemetery on the 5th km of the Balaklava Road .


As a result of research conducted in 1990, recorded in 1772 at the cemetery graves with signs of grave structures, but only 547 of them can read the names of those buried . Almost 33% of the graves are marked only burial mounds .The surviving headstones researcher were divided into 10 types, which in turn can be divided into 25 groups .This gravestone in the form of a flower garden , set mainly in pre-revolutionary times , the horizontal gravestones in the form of plates with a plaque , with a varying elevation , in the form of stelae, pyramids or obelisks, as well as in the form of a sarcophagus, belonging to the most ancient. Researcher in the Crimea began H1H . P.Koeppen calls this type of Karaite humble tomb [8]. Found only in pre-revolutionary part of the cemetery . For more rare headstones include art and architecture in the form of dried wood, the Department of Talmud or a metal gazebo. At the cemetery, there are three vault.Unfortunately, at present cemetery is in disrepair and has not yet resolved the question of his accomplishment .

In the middle of the cemetery was a house - chapel ( the remnants of which survived to our time ), built and consecrated in the beginning of the century.Mayor and all those economic governance and burial fraternity , during his tenure which was built and consecrated this house ... It was celebrated prayer service , and then served the funeral was on a Bose deceased Emperor Alexander II and Alexander III ...

The remaining burials can be divided chronologically : pre-revolutionary and Soviet periods. Moreover, surviving only 7% of the graves belong to the pre-Revolutionary Graves (the figure is inaccurate , since part of the cemetery with the graves of pre-revolutionary heavily overgrown with bushes .)We found out that some of those buried were urban doctors, some - by merchants.

In a statement on the restoration of voting rights EH GYindicated that he was a furrier by trade and its products are not sold , and rented a pawnshop .Perhaps the crucial role played by the fact that he worked at the farm red garment , and witnesses also confirmed that they knew him as a lone craftsman , do not use hired labor, and April 25, 1931 KrymTsIK upheld his complaint by deleting from the list of disenfranchised persons [15] .Some of those who have been deprived of voting rights , who later killed or died during the defense of Sevastopol 1941-1942. , Were shot by the Nazis, or as a family Krimchaks Mangupli , died on the first day of the war [ 16].June 22, 1941 at the dawn of a German mines, which were thrown at the Sevastopol bay, hit the street Podgorny, where civilians were killed .

In 1921 her husband died , leaving his family of seven human - rights. From 1925 to 1928 in the booth at the market she had to sell small haberdashery . This was the reason for deprivation of voting rights.It did not help that she worked as a seamstress shop wardrobe , as well as the fact that she was dependent on the son-in - voenporta working , and that the witnesses Slutsky, Abramov , Feldman, Hershkowitz and even a member of the Komsomol Shikatovskaya showed that she did not use hired labor.September 26, 1931 issued its verdict last three Sebastopol City Council : ... request leave without consequences [ 24].
