Overview

Very little is known of the Jewish Cemetery of Rzochów. As a small village on the outskirts of Mielec, it was a less-known place and hence garnered fewer historical records than Mielec itself. There is no signage to indicate that a cemetery was once here, nor are there any visible tombstones. It looks like a typical wooded area.

How to Visit

The only way to ensure you are on this spot is to use a GPS navigation system. The center of the cemetery is at 50° 14’ 49.218” N, 21° 30’ 47.388” E. Bring sturdy shoes as the terrain is rugged. It will feel like you are on top of a hill when you’re there.
