Historical overview

According to IAJGS, there were 6 tombstones from the 19th-20th centuries on the site when they visited in 2009. These tombstones bore inscriptions in Hebrew. As such, the cemetery was most likely already in use by the 19th century. The only legible tombstone discovered by the ESJF team is dated 1924.
