Jewish Cemetery

Although most of Harbin's Jewish community returned to their homelands after 1948, a Jewish graveyard still stands. The first Jewish cemetery in Harbin was built in 1903 and was moved in 1958 to the Huang Shan (Royal Hill) Public Cemetery located on the outskirts of Harbin's municipal boundaries.

The tombstones in the cemetery are varied, with 876 graves. Today only 480 headstones can be identified, among which, the relatives of Leah Rabin, widow of former prime minister of Israel Yitzhak Rabin, are buried.

    Can you assist by advising where the tombstone of Abraham (ben Gershon)Lev is situated in the Harbin Jewish Cemetery? Abraham Lev was my grandfather who passed away due to the spanish (Russian) flu epidemic, he was in his 20s (I understand it was about 1919 when he passed away).
