  Lublin, ul. Walecznych, lubelskie

New Jewish cemetery in Lublin was established in 1829. During Word War I Jewish war cemetery was established there. During Word War II Germans devastated the necropolis – only empty square part of the wall and two damaged ohels remained. Nazis used the matzevot to harden so-called Black Road in Majdanek concentration camp. When the war finished local authorities of the time gave permission to build a road in the middle of the cemetery. This way the area was divided into two squares of 3.5 ha each. In 1989 it was listed in the register of historical monuments. In 8.6 ha there are about 50 tombstones, including contemporary ones. The cemetery is still used for burials by local Jewish community. Near the entrance there is a Memorial Hall, connected with a smallish synagogue which commemorates families of the foundators – Basses and Frenkles. Inside there is a constant exhibition on history of Lublin’s Jewish cemeteries. The area is surrounded by concrete slabs shaped as matzevot with metal menorahs. There are some statues as well – including the one commemorating 190 Jews executed during the liquidation of the ghetto. The statue resembles the cemetery wall.
