Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. However, given the oldest preserved tombstone dates to 1930, it can be inferred it was already in use in the first half of the 20th century. According to the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS), in 2009, the site contained up to 20 tombstones dating to the 20th century.
