Jozefin Jewish Cemetery
West Pomeranian Voivodeship
Józefin (hamlet), commune Lipiany
The Jewish cemetery in Józefin is situated in the forest close to the road from Lipiany to Żelice, about 50 meters to the north-west from the junction with the dirt road to Józefin. Access is via a path that leads from the dirt road to Józefin. The path goes almost straight west towards the cemetery.

Type and height of existing fence
It cannot be considered that the cemetery is fenced and protected, because its fence is a simple, very low fence (maximum 100 cm) made of wooden boards (two planks between the posts), which in many places is damaged, knocked down or simply non-existent.
Unfenced Jewish cemetery
General site condition
