     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 development.
