Information on the cemetery’s establishment is not known, but it was marked on a map from 1880. Presumably, the cemetery was operating until WWII and was demolished during or after.

Little is known about the locality. In 1890, 218 Jews were inhabitants of Vybranivka and the Jewish population decreased twice by 1921. During the second half of 1942, the local Jews were expelled to Bibrka where they were killed with the Jews who had lived there.

3D model allows us to get topographical information from the site with high accuracy later we use this model to produce a proposed design with fence that could be constructed for the site preservation.
