This is my latest presentation regarding those buried at the Jewish Cemetery of Lubaczow, replacing blogs from 2013 and 2014.
1. Bogdan Lisze, my local contact, who has photographed many of the stones.
2. The descendants of the Jewish families who once lived in Lubaczow for sharing their knowledge.
3. Jewish Records Indexing- Poland for their valuable assistance in improving the data.
Corrections and improvements are welcome.

Gravestone = מצבה
During my visits to Lubaczow, I have always been surprised how the local population refer to Jewish gravestones. In Hebrew I would say Matzevah. In Lubaczow they actually use that word, but in a more Yiddish sounding version - Matzeveh.
