Old Jewish cemetery in Sosnowiec - located at ul. Pastewna, a Jewish cemetery serving the Jewish community that once lived in the present borough of Sosnowiec - ModrzejĂłw. There are no documents from which the date of creation could be determined. The fact is, however, that it had to exist already in the 18th century (the oldest gravestone dated 1790). The cemetery was badly damaged by the Germans during the Second World War. Then for many years overgrown with grass and bushes. It was not until the 1980s and 1990s that the cemetery was cleaned up and fenced. Currently, there are about three hundred tombstones or fragments of the cemetery (no money for detailed research does not allow archaeological work to be carried out in the back of the necropolis where there are more historic tombstones under the cover of the ground and grass). Interesting are the unique matzevot with the Polish eagle (probably the expression of patriotism of the deceased) and with the image of a horse, forged on the matzeva of Szymon Wenger (son of Zeewa Wenger).
