Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. Given the oldest preserved tombstone dates to 1874, it can be inferred it was founded no later than the second half of 19th century. Moreover, it appears on an Austro-Hungarian map of the region from the 1880s. According to the JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR), the site contained 47 tombstones in 2010.
