Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. The oldest preserved matsevah among existing gravestones relates to the early 20th century so it can be assumed that the cemetery emerged during that period. It appeares on an old Polish topographic map. The cemetery was fenced by ESJF in September 2015.
