US Commission No. SLCE000168

Tura Luka is located NE of Senica. The suburban hillside, separate but near other cemeteries, has no sign or marker. Reached by turning directly off a public road, access is open to all via a fence and a locking gate. 20-100 18th-20th century marble, granite, and sandstone flat shaped tombstones (some with carved relief decorations), finely smoothed and inscribed stones, or double tombstones with Hebrew inscriptions are in original locations. The site is Jewish cemetery only. Adjacent properties are residential. Occasionally, private visitors stop. Restoration was re-erection of stones, patching broken stones, cleaning stones, clearing vegetation, and fixing of fence. There is now a regular caretaker. Weather erosion is a minor threat.
