Preserved construction on site
The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. The oldest preserved tombstone dates to the mid 19th century, so it can be assumed the cemetery was founded around that time. It can first be found marked on a Russian map of the region from 1898 and, later, on maps from the 1930s. The fence was erected by ESJF in 2017.
