Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. It was not marked on old maps. According to the VAAD database, the oldest gravestone relates to 1835. The only epigraphic data found by ESJF expedition relates to the late 19th century, so it can be assumed that the cemetery emerged during that period.
