Announcing... An Inventory of Przemyśl's Jewish Cemetery

Finally... a website to search Przemyśl's Jewish Cemetery! Photos, GPS locations, translations, and more!

On behalf of Remembrance and Reconciliation, Inc., and using data sets from Andrew Kier Wise, Professor of History, Daemen College, and his students, as well as from Jacek Szwic, Piotr Szwic, Yale Reisner, and Lukasz Biedka, I've created a site where you can search the cemetery.

The site is JewishPrzemysl.com

Please report all bugs, errors, or suggestions back to me!

I recently learned that my family (Wunder) was originally from Przemysl and lived there throughout the 1800's and early 1900's at least. I tried to search for graves with that name, but didn't come up with anything. Do you have any advice? Also I'm looking for records of my family (besides JRI-Poland). If you have any ideas of where to look, I'd appreciate any and all advice.

Thanks in advance for all help!

I was able to confirm there 3 Wunders died in Przemysl, and I imagine were buried there as well... is there any way to find their graves? Is there any way to know if they were buried in the old cemetery or the new one? possibly based on the date they died?
