Cemetery in Popovo after construction
Cemetery in Popovo before construction

The Jewish cemetery is located outside of town, on the mountainside. ESJF surveyors noted that it was not maintained.  The day after Passover 5704 (16 April 1944), the general roundup of all Popovo’s Jews began. They were all taken to the ghetto, where they cowered for a month or so and then were transported to Auschwitz.
