Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. The oldest preserved gravestone relates to the first half of the 18th century, so it can be assumed that the cemetery emerged during that period. According to the VAAD database, there is a gravestone of 1667, but it was not detected by ESJF surveyors team. The cemetery first appears on Austrian maps of the 1880s and, later, it was also marked on a Polish map of 1939.
