Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown, but it can be assumed that the cemetery emerged in the early 20th century. First, it appears on Russian topographic maps of the 1910s, and, later, it was also marked on a Polish map of 1939. There are no signs of the cemetery on the maps later than 1944, so it can be assumed that the cemetery was no longer existing during that period. There are no visible traces of the cemetery and its boundaries today.
