The cemetery was established in 1908 and also served the Jewish communities of Duvno, Kupres, Donji, and Vakuf. The last known Jewish burial was in 1940. Almost all the Jews of Bugojno were slaughtered in 1941; after the war, the city authorities fenced the site to prevent development impinging on it. In the event no Jews returned to the town. The cemetery and its Ohel were damaged heavily in the Bosnian war and have not been repaired, and the gravestones are neglected and deteriorating. Nevertheless, the cemetery retains its original size. The oldest remaining gravestone is from 1918. Inscriptions are in Hebrew, German, and Serbo-Croat. Address: Vrbaska Street, Gromile, 70230 Bugojno Source [January 2009]
