  • The Jewish cemetery in Tarnów was probably created before 1581. To this day, there have been many tombages from a few centuries ago. The members of the most famous Jewish families from Tarnów were buried here (eg. (Merzów and Szancerów) and the Tarnowskich Cadicians and rabbis. During World War II, Germany made mass executions of the Jewish community, for example. From 11 to 18 VI 1942, around 3000 people were murdered in Tarnów. In the cemetery area, there was also a mass shot in the previously prepared pits. In 1942, sandstone tombstone was used by Germans to strengthen roads and sidewalks. In 1976, the cemetery was entered into the list of monuments.
