It was created in 1892 when residents of the nearby neighborhood refused to allow the expansion of the old cemetery, containing over 3,000 graves. Izrael Poznanski donated the first 10.5 hectares of land towards the establishment of a new cemetery.
There are about 43,000 people buried in the part of the cemetery called Ghetto Field, who died of starvation, illnesses and extenuation during the holocaust.
