Cemetery in Popovo after construction
Cemetery in Popovo before construction

The cemetery is located on the hillside outside the town. ESJF surveyors noted that it was poorly maintained. The day after Passover, 5704 (April 16th, 1944), the Jews of Popovo began to be rounded up. They were all transferred to the ghetto, where they languished for a month or so before they were taken to Auschwitz.
