As you may sadly be able to imagine, this is one of Europe's largest Jewish Cemeteries, and has several mass graves as well as more than 200,000 marked graves. The mass graves are mostly the final resting places of Jews from Warsaw's Jewish Ghetto. The cemetery was closed during the war, but after it was reopened. It's overgrown but lovelier for it.
