Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. But since it appears on a Russian map from the 1880s and a Polish map from the 1910s it can be assumed that the cemetery already existed during that period. The cemetery was also mentioned in Yizkor memorial book of Sarny issued in 1961 and marked on its map. According to locals, the cemetery was demolished in the late Soviet period.
