Vidzy Cemetery is in the midst of farmland, completely abandoned with no enclosure or sign. Many stones have sunk into the ground. Many lean while others are missing. Used until the Holocaust, the site was probably at least 150 years old. About 200 stones are now visible. One Jew lives in the town. His name is Dovid, owner of three flour mills.
