Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. Given the oldest preserved tombstone dates to the late 19th century, it can be inferred the cemetery was founded in that era. It cannot be found marked on old maps of the region. The fence was erected by ESJF in November 2015.
