The old Jewish cemetery in Włodawa was established in the 18th century. It was situated about 1 km north of the town center between Wiejska and Krzywa Streets. The last known burial took place at the beginning of the 19th century.

During World War II the Germans devastated the cemetery using the gravestones for laying the pavements and for regulating the Włodawka River. After the war this area was intended for construction purposes. Not a single trace has been left after this cemetery.

Today there is a park at site of the cemetery.[Radio Lublin, Dec. 7th 2009., more>>]
