The Jewish cemetery in Paczków was founded in the first half of the 19th century. It was located outside the city limits, nearby the present day Paczkowski reservoir and close to the area of the water pipeline.
During WWII the Germans devastated the cemetery. After the war the local people looted most of the gravestones.

In the area of 0.5 ha not one gravestone remains. In the place where the cemetery had once stood there is now a forest. Between the thick bushes one may find the foundations and pieces of broken gravestones. The cemetery is devastated and neglected.
