Information about the cemetery from the sztetl.org website:

“The cemetery of the Jewish commune in Otwock was established at the beginning of the 20th century, south of Otwock, within the present administrative boundaries of Karczew, between Andriollego Street and Czerwona Droga Street. The easiest way to get to the cemetery from the side of Karczew is through Czerwona Droga Street. the forest on the right side you can see a wooden chapel, the cemetery is on the left side, about 200 m further. You can also reach the cemetery from Otwock, turning right from Andriolego Street into Hrabiego Street or directly into Czerwona Droga Street.

In the interwar period, mainly people who died in hospitals and sanatoriums in Otwock were buried in the cemetery.

Translocation Jewish settlement maps exhibit @ National Archive Prague

Translocation Jewish settlement maps exhibit @ National Archive Prague | Hlavní město Praha | Czechia

An exhibition of maps of Jewish settlement in Bohemia and Moravia in the18th century.

Translocation Plans of Jewish residences in the Lands of the Bohemian Crown from 1727–1728 represent a set of extraordinary value, providing a reliable picture of the internal development of settlements and their topography, and documenting, among other things, the economic and social condition of the Jewish population in the Czech lands. On the basis of comparison with other sources and, above all, sketch maps from the Stable Cadastre, it was possible to trace the development of Jewish settlement in the range of more than one century to some extent (until the mid-19th century).

There is also a web site associated with the exhibition
