“Heart breaking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The cemetery is old and crowded. The stones are falling down and leaning on each other like old men. It brings history to the here and now. A cemetery of long ago with a tragic history to come.

“Walk back in time and well maintained”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The site was on the tour I had taken. It is well worth the visit. This cemetery was not destroyed during the war so you can walk around and learn about the community. It is well cared for and also has some very interesting introduction about the cemetery and the war.

“Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

no words. Again this is a must see attraction for all Jews and gentiles alike. Some of the headstones date hundreds of years back but we were most impressed with the memorial for the Jews of the ghetto and with the memorial for the children who died in the war

it is definetly a place that should be visited by people that want to feel a bit of history. go on your own and spend there a couple of hours. It is also a good place for taking photographs.
