Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. Given it appears on Russian maps from 1929 and, later, was marked as a Jewish cemetery on a map from 1941, it can be assumed the cemetery already existed by that period. No visible traces of the cemetery or its boundaries remain today.
