Preserved construction on site
During WW2 the Germans removed some of the tombstones and the devastation process continued after liberation. The matzevot disappeared and the area of the necropolis was gradually covered with rubbish. This state of affairs did not change until the 1990s, when, on the initiative of Drejza and Natan Weiss, with financial support from, among others, Zygfryd Kellerman, Roman Laufer and Leon Reich, the cemetery was fenced and cleaned up.
A dozen or so fragments of discovered tombstones have also been recovered.
