The cemetery was walled in by the red brickwork and had two gates that exist to date. The whole area was divided into three parcels as the children, men and women were buried separately. Within 100 years of its existence 1117 deceased of Mosaic confession were buried there. Among them were the relatives of Edith Stein such as: grandmother Adelaide Courant nee Burchard (+1883), grandfather Solomon Courant (+1896) and her elder brothers Ernest (born in 1887 in Gliwice, dead in 1882 in Lubliniec) and Richard (dead in 1887, lived for 7 days).
