Jewish Cemetery

Cemetery in Nowy Sącz

Around 500m north of the Old Town on the other side of the Kamienica River is the former Jewish cemetery. It contains a couple of hundred derelict headstones amid overgrown grass. During WWII it was the site of mass executions; there is a monument to the several hundred Jews taken from the Nowy Sącz wartime ghetto and shot here.
