The Chelm-Gdansk Cemetery is a 2.3 hectare Jewish cemetery, with graves of the Jewish community of Danzig dating from the 1860's. The cemetery survived the Holocaust times in good condition. It was closed in 1956 and seriously devastated in the following years. It currently remains in dilapidated condition. The land has been reclaimed by the Jewish community, which has roots in the community going back to at least 1694. The International Jewish Cemetery Project of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies is tracking its restoration.
