According to ESJF European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative, the exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. According to the Commission on the Preservation of Jewish Heritage (KSEN), after the construction of the reservoir in the 1950s, some ashes and matzevot were transferred by relatives to the city of Nikopol (Dnipropetrovsk region). Several surviving tombstones were found in the water near the coast at a decent depth. It is marked on maps from the 19th century. 

The location of the cemetery has been determined according to the KSEN data. None of the locals knew anything about the Jewish cemetery. Locals remembered the old German cemetery (it was demolished,  and the tombstones were reburied by relatives), the old Orthodox Christian cemetery and the Scythian one. Nobody knew anything about Jewish burials.
