New Jewish cemetery in AugustĂłw - closed Jewish cemetery in AugustĂłw, located at ul. Zarzecze. The cemetery was built around 1820, along with the new cemetery for other denominations. It was located in the western part of the cemetery complex and separated by a fence. The first brick tombstones appeared earlier than in the Catholic part - in 1826, 1835, 1840, and the tomb shrine - in 1830. It covers an area of 3 ha, on which - due to the devastation from World War II - only eight matzevot from the turn of the 19th century survived and the twentieth century and a pre-funeral house currently serving residential purposes. In 1981, Jews from AugustĂłw founded a monument in the necropolis in honor of the pre-war Jewish inhabitants of AugustĂłw and the AugustĂłw region. The history of the monument's construction was shown in the American documentary Journey to Augustow from 1991 directed by Naomi Zeavin, whose family came from AugustĂłw. The school is looked after by the students of Secondary School No. 2 SybirakĂłw in AugustĂłw. [source: Wikipedia, 1590989]
