Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. Presumably the Jewish Cemetery was established in the 19th century since it appears on Russian maps of 1880s and, later, on Polish maps of 1939s. It is unknown when the cemetery was demolished. Nowadays there are no visible traces of the cemetery and its boundaries.
