Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. However, it can be found marked on Austro-Hungarian maps from the 1880s and, according to Pinkas Kehilot Slovakia, the site contains a tombstone dating to 1711. As such, it can be inferred the cemetery was founded no later than the early 18th century.
