General site condition
The cemetery is divided into two parts by Molodizhna Street. The western part sits on the hill, while the eastern section sits on flat ground. There are multiple preserved matzevot, but they are deeply sunken in the ground and difficult to see from the surface. The territory is well-maintained, with no specific maintenance required.
Number of existing gravestones
10. The local Valerii told us he recalls inscriptions on the matzevot, which are presumably beneath the ground now. He offered to cut the bushes and attempt to dig out the matzevot in the spring.
