ENG: According to written records, the cemetery was established, as well as synagogue in Janovice, in 1723. But it is probably older, since the oldest legible gravestone dates from 1705. On the area 1515 m2 around 260 gravestones have been preserved, from the Baroque, classicism to modern. There is also the memorial to 24 local Jewish citizens, who were victims of Nazism.
