Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. But since it appears on Russian topographic maps of 1880s it can be assumed that the cemetery emerged in the 19th century. Later, in 1939 it appears on maps of Wojskowy Instytut Geograficzny (WIG). The oldest tombstone’s date relates to the early 20th century. A significant part of the cemetery was destroyed right after the Second World War.
