While there used to be three main Lithuanian Jewish cemeteries in the Vilnius region, they have all been consolidated over the years into the Suderves Cemetery. It is located six kilometres from the Old City. There are many well-known Lithuanian Jewish leaders buried at this cemetery, including Dr. Cemah Shabad, one of the most famous Jewish doctors of Vilnius; Rabbi Chaim Ozer Grodzinski, the founder of the Panevezys Yeshiva; I.J. Rabinovitch, who is known as the last victim of the Vilnius ghetto. In addition, I. Vitenberg and S. Maidesker, who were members of the First Partisan Organization (FPO) and organized the Vilnisu ghetto uprising, are buried there alongside victims of the ghetto.
