Radzilow Jewish Cemetery

It was located on Piekna Street. The year of its foundation is unknown, covering a surface of .56 hectares, it's not enclosed, it's desolate, and there are no tombstones; local authorities had used it as (or converted it to) a garbage dump.

     Translated from: Remembrances & Monuments of Jewish Culture in Poland.
     Assembled, compiled and introduced by Przemyslaw Burchard. Warsaw, 1990.

Note: Its location is on the outskirts of town, north of Karwowo Street, about about 1000-1200 meters to the east of Town Square, opposite the current location of the public school.
