The New Lomza Jewish Cemetery Renovation Project
2003 Documentation Project
The updated grave count


            [Progress Report]              [Home]

Removal of the vegetation form the entire cemetery has permitted us to inspect  the South-Eastern half covered with weeds for the last 60 years.
At the beginning of  the restoration project we estimated that the cemetery consisted of about 600 graves and that S-E half  was only sparsely used for burials.
This summer we have found the initial estimate to be incorrect.
Our, by now complete documentation shows that cemetery is practically full with exception of sectors 24, 25, 26, 29, 30. According to our most recent records there are close to 2500 deceased buried there.
