Hlavná 183 Cemetery:


  • Jewish cemetery of Raslavice is located by the main road and can be entered through a garden of a family house on the Main Street nr.183. The 200 x 15 m cemetery has about 90 gravestones. Older graves are located in the lower and newer in the upper part of the cemetery. The cemetery has no proper maintenance and therefore is overgrown with bush and grass. The gravestones are simple, mostly granite, but  marble as well. Inscriptions are in Hebrew; the only symbol is the weeping willow. Elderly locals also remember an older Jewish cemetery supposedly located in the forest on the hill above the village.  Source and photos. [Sep 2014]
