Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. The oldest preserved gravestone relates to the first half of the 19th century, so it can be assumed that the cemetery emerged during that period. First, it appears on Russian topographic maps and Austrian military surveys of the 1880s. Later, it was marked on a Polish map of 1939.
