Przemysl New Jewish Cemetery
This cemetery is one of the few active Jewish cemeteries in Poland. The cemetery was founded around 1847, after the old Jewish cemetery of Przemysl was almost completely full. There are numerous monuments to the holocause as well as many of the tombstones of the victims. After the war, a monument dedicated “In memory of 4,000 Jews, victims of Nazi crimes in 1939-1944” was erected near the gate. Further into the cemetery, you can find the mass grave of the Jews from Medyka, murdered by the Germans in 1943, and the symbolic grave of the famous social activist, Captain Emil Klausner, murdered by the NKVD in Katyn. In the central part of the cemetery, in twelve mass graves, victims of German executions were buried including Jews from, among others: Przemyśl, Stalowa Wola and Lubaczów. On November 3rd 1986, the cemetery was entered into the register of monuments under the number A-161.
