Second Jewish Cemetery

 

The new Jewish cemetery was founded approximately 400 – 600 meters from the old ones. Kupa Primary School and Kupiskis Hospital now stand nearby. Unfortunately, during the Soviet times, in Lithuania, waved a drive of Jewish cemetery destroying, these Jewish cemeteries were closed (about 1970), monuments were demolished and used for the construction of streets and pavements of the town. There are only a few tombstones with records in the Yiddish language, after the restoration of Independence, restored on the edge of the former cemetery. Now, as a rebuke to the Soviet system, in the centre of the former burial ground there is a water tower. It is impossible to determine the location of the cemetery territory in which the Kupiskis Jewish community was buried and the exact places for burial.
