Jewish cemetery in Wadowice - was founded in 1882 and covers an area of 0.5 ha. Tombstones, made mainly of marble and sandstone, are decorated with ornaments and religious symbols (Torah scroll, menorah, indicator - venom, star of David and others). Ryte or painted inscriptions on them, mostly Hebrew and Latin, are quite concise and do not give too much information about the buried. The cemetery is surrounded by a brick fence. There are about 450 gravestones in the cemetery, and a granite monument above them, dedicated to the memory of Jews from Wadowice, Cieszyn, Katowice, Żywiec, Bielsko, Dziedzice, Czechowice, Andrychów, Kęty, Sucha Beskidzka and Zator, who stayed in the Wadowice ghetto, and then they were murdered in extermination camps. There are tombstones of three presidents of the Jewish community in Wadowice: Izrael Huppert (died 1917), Izydor Daniel (died 1919) and Zachariasz Kluger (died 1937). The cemetery is located in Wadowice, at ul. Wojska Polskiego 52, in the area currently owned by the Jewish Religious Community in Bielsko-Biała. [source: Wikipedia, 1405985]
