Zabokreky is located NE of Topolcany. The isolated rural/agricultural flat land 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. The present size of the cemetery is 70x70 meters. 20-100 19th-20th century marble, granite, and sandstone flat shaped tombstones and finely smoothed and inscribed stones are in original locations. Inscriptions are Hebrew, German, and Hungarian. Within the cemetery is a pre-burial house. The property is Jewish cemetery and agriculture. Properties adjacent are agricultural. The pre- and post-1939 boundaries are the same. Occasionally, private visitors stop. Security is a serious threat; vegetation and vandalism are very serious threats. [1999]
