This Jewish cemetery in Krakow, is a huge place where you can see numerous headstones from 1820 to nowadays. Personally, I appreciated the cemetery and if you are planning to visit Auschwitz ,you should go to this quite and touching place.

The New Jewish Cemetery (NJC) was established in the year 1800 - and is still a functioning cemetery today - but to me, it looks more like a primeval forest. The cemetery seems to be divided into three major sections, loosely based on time period:...More

We visited the new cemetery which opened in the 1800s. We read a number of the inscriptions and felt very sad that so many of them had died during the war with no actual date of death just 1941 - 1945. The cemetery is bursting...More
