The Gostyniner organization is no longer functioning, but the cemetery sections still have burials once in a while. They are, in a real sense, one of the few, if not, the only physical reminder of the Jewish Community of Gostynin.

Julian H. Preisler will submit photos of the elaborate entrance gates to both cemetery sections He will make a list of burials in both cemetery sections.
