Czersk Jewish Cemetery
The area of the cemetery, established around 1800, is located at the present Piaskowa Street, on the premises of Klose Furniture Factory. During World War I and in the immediate period thereafter, 54 Russian Jewish prisoners from a nearby POW camp were buried there. According to the inhabitants of Czersk, the necropolis was destroyed by the Nazis. It was completely destroyed at the behest of the local landrat, Hermann Gross, who before the war was an entrepreneur in Czersk and the owner of a mill. Most of the matzevot were taken away. There is no access to the cemetery from the outside and the factory management refuses entry to the grounds. Apparently, a few tombstones may have survived on an area of approximately 0.5 hectares.
