The cemetery was destroyed during the World War II. Today, the area is occupied by a holiday resort. Some of the gravestones can be found in different parts of the city. Below, photos of some matzevot are shown. These gravestones were from the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, and were made from sandstone, which preserved traces of polychromy.
