Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. It cannot be found marked on old maps of the region. According to the Lo Tishkakh database, the only preserved gravestone dates to 1935. As such, the cemetery most likely already existed in that period. The presence of this tombstone was confirmed by the ESJF survey team, but its date was almost illegible.
