  • JV od centra, za mostom cez rieku cemetery: A neglected and overgrown remnant of the cemetery is located on a difficult to access slope SE of the centrer of this small town and  on the low hill overlooking the Poprad River. A dilapidated fence indicates that the cemetery originally may have been a triangular plot of about 50x20 m. In dense vegetation are 11 standing and approximately 20 toppled visible imple travertine and marble gravestones  inscribed in German and Herbrew. The site is severely neglected,with traces of camping (2 campfires) and used a dumping area. photos [Sep 2014]
  • US Commission No. SLCE000065: Podolinec is located SW of Stara Lubovna. The isolated rural/agricultural hillside has no sign or marker. Reached by turning directly off a public road, access is open to all via a broken masonry wall without gate. 1-20 19th-20th century flat shaped limestone tombstones with Hebrew inscriptions are in original locations. Adjacent properties are agricultural. Rarely, private visitors stop. Vandalism is a moderate threat.
