We visited the new cemetery which opened in the 1800s. We read a number of the inscriptions and felt very sad that so many of them had died during the war with no actual date of death just 1941 - 1945. The cemetery is bursting with graves and even the paths have been used for graves. It's well worth a... More

I did this as part of a tour of the Jewish Quarter. I found it highly interesting and would highly recommend it. It is even more interesting hearing the stories behind the headstones that are built into the wall

A really old cemetery with a lot of history. Worth checking out if you have a couple minutes to spare. The most interesting thing about this is that the wall consists of broken headstones and old slabs from WWII.

We stumbled across this cemetery completely by accident on a cold and rainy day in November. This is a sad yet beautiful place for quiet contemplation. Right inside the gate is a monument to the holocaust victims, and the wall to the far right is made from old headstones that were destroyed by the nazis. There are still piles of... More

This is a sad yet simple place just outside the heart of Kazimerz where one can wander at leisure among the tomb stones pondering on the nature and meaning of life.

Very sad place ,some of the graves were people who had died during the holocaust,the cemetery was in a derelict condition and could have done with being looked after better,there is a large memorial to Jews murdered during the holocaust,well worth a visit ,but as mentioned cemetery in bad state of repair.

If you can read a bit of German, Polish, or Hebrew there are many interesting gravestones to read. The "new cemetery" dates from early 1800's to present. There are many sad memorials from families that lost many members to the Nazis in WWII. The cemetery is chock a block with gravestones in every available space. The paths are narrow and... More

Quiet place in a rather busy district. Trees, grass and simple tombs, simple and essential. Not much variety or decorations. To have a slow walk, observe the stones, read the names, imagine how those interconnected lives could be. Worth a visit, free entrance.

It takes a 10 minutes walk from Kazimierz district, but it is worth the visit. Very nice setting, lot of history and special atmosphere.
