Nova Chortoryia Jewish Cemetery
The exact period of the cemtery establishment is unknown. The cemetery is marked as a Jewish one on the 1870s map, and simply as a cemetery in the map from the 1900s. Presumably, it operated until the second half of the 19th century. According to locals, the clay from the cemetery site was dug for the purposes of the brick factory in the 1970s.
