Jewish cemetery in Janów
Jewish cemetery in Janów founded in late 19th century on a rectangular plan. Located in the northern part of the village, outside its buildings, among fields. Area of about 1 ha. During WWII most of the stone surrounding wall was demolished, and the obtained material was used to improve the road to Korycin. A similar fate befell many stone matzevas. Some granite matzevas were also used by local residents for making so-called grindstones for sharpening farm and craft tools. About 200 stone gravestones survived, with illegible inscriptions; matzevas overgrown with moss. The remains of a fence and gate are greatly devastated. The cemetery gate was located in the south-western corner of the fence. The area of the cemetery is overgrown with wild greenery. Numerous matzevas, partially absorbed into the ground, sunken, illegible inscriptions do not resemble the cemetery where almost 400 gravestones were counted during the documentary work conducted here in the 1980s.
