General site condition
The cemetery is covered with seasonal vegetation. Now, it is a virgin soil. At the provided coordinates (46.69344, 32.35483) there is now a building inside the territory of the former collective farm. Some locals say they remember crosses at the site and other locals stated that the crosses were once recovered from a pond nearby. This indicated that there probably was a Christian cemetery, or a christian section at the site. Locals indicated that the territory in the fields was the site of a long ago demolished Jewish cemetery. The site was demolished and ploughed a long time ago, however today the territory is unused. Near the village there is a mass grave and a monument dedicated to its victims (46.684245, 32.369464). The head of the village council states that he regularly cleans and maintains the monument.
