New Jewish cemetery in Bełchatów - founded in 1893 (in the same year a brick synagogue was built in Bełchatów), was located at Lipowa street (today the intersection of Lipowa and Włókniarzy streets). It had an area of 1.69 ha. Also this cemetery was devastated by the Nazis during the war. Graveyard matzevot were used for construction works in Bełchatów - curing roads, sidewalks, laying foundations for new buildings and regulating the Widawka riverbed. After the war, a symbolic monument was erected in the new cemetery - a lapidary from fragments of preserved matzevot, however, it was destroyed in 1970, when a city park was created in the Jewish cemetery (park of 1000 years - this is what it still bears). In 1991, cleaning works were carried out in the park, and a year later - on the 50th anniversary of the liquidation of the Bełchatów ghetto - on the site of the former cemetery (in the center of the existing park) an obelisk was unveiled with a commemorative plaque with an inscription in four languages: Jewish cemetery destroyed by Nazi occupiers in the years 1939 - 1945. The basis of the obelisk are made up of embedded fragments of the matzevot who survived the cemetery. [source: Wikipedia, 1056629]
