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.
