The earliest known
Jewish community was 1841. 1939 Jewish population (census) was 2134.
Effecting Jewish Community was 1918-1921 Pogroms and 1930 Elimination
of Jewish organizations. The Jewish cemetery was established in 1890
with last known Hasidic burial 1941. No other towns or villages used
this unlandmarked cemetery. The suburban flat land, part of a municipal
cemetery, has no sign or marker. Reached by turning directly off a
public road, access is open to all. No walls, fence, or gate surround
site. No stones are visible. Location of any removed stones is unknown.
The cemetery contains marked mass graves. Municipality owns the
property now used for agriculture (crops or animal grazing). Adjacent
properties are agricultural. The cemetery boundaries are smaller now
than 1939 because of agriculture. Rarely do local residents visit. The
cemetery was vandalized during World War II. There is no maintenance
now. Within the limits of the cemetery are no structures. Vegetation
overgrowth is a seasonal problem preventing access. Very serious
threat: uncontrolled access and vandalism. Moderate threat: weather
erosion, pollution and vegetation. Slight threat: existing nearby
