Old Jewish Cemetery of Mielec – South-East Block

The South-East Block of the Old Jewish Cemetery of Mielec on ul. Jadernych were the first stones returned to the cemetery after the war. They were retrieved out of the Wisłoka river in 1994 and each stone was reset with a poured concrete footing. These stones were set in four neat rows that remain to this day. Unfortunately some of the writing has been permanently lost due to being covered in concrete.


Prof. Leszek Hondo at Jagellonian University in Kraków is publishing a book (soon) of the Jadernych cemetery which will include these stones. Meanwhile here are a few images. Photos courtesy Beata Ślemp-Kwoka and Cezary Borowski.

The full collection of photos were uploaded to the JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR) by Scott Genzer in 2018.
