Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. Given the oldest preserved tombstone dates to the mid 20th century it can be inferred the cemetery was founded around then. It can first be found marked on a Russian map of the region from the first half of the 20th century. The fence was installed by the ESJF in July 2015.
