    The Jewish cemetery was established late 18th century. The community of Kamionna, 5 km away, used this cemetery. The isolated suburban hillside has no sign or marker. Reached by turning directly off a public road, access is open to all without wall or gate. The size of the cemetery before WWII and now is 0.26 hectares. There are no gravestones or structures. Municipality owns site now used for agriculture. Properties adjacent are residential. Local residents frequently visit the cemetery. The cemetery was vandalized during WWII. No maintenance or care.
