The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. First, it appears on Austrian maps of the 1860s, so it can be assumed that the cemetery already existed during that period. It was also mentioned in Yizkor memorial book in 1976 and marked on its map. According to a local historian, it was demolished after 1945.
