Burials in Shumen

Compiled by Mathilde Tagger


Shumen - or Shumla her Turkish name- is situated in the North-East of Bulgaria. At the end of 19th century the local Alliance Israélite Universelle School played an important role in Shumen. The community of Shumen was also known for its early and strong commitment to Zionism. The community almost disappeared with the mass immigration to Israel that occurred from October 1948 to June 1948 and the only Jewish remnant is the Jewish cemetery.

My friend, Joseph Covo, obtained a copy of the burials from a local Jew, on which the names were in chronological order.

The present alphabetic index includes the names of 621 deceased who died in Shumen between 1844 and 1966. Most of the death/burial dates are from the 1940s. There are dates of death for only 16.5% of the deceased. The number column contains the order number
on the original list.
