Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s  foundation is uncertain. While it was presumably marked on old maps of the region, all current information on the cemetery’s existence and location was provided by Taran Mykola Polikarpovych. There is also evidence the cemetery was used as an execution site, where Jews were taken to be shot. The date of demolition is unknown. No traces of the cemetery or its boundaries remain.
