The Jewish cemetery of Raslavice is located by the main road and can be entered through a garden of a family house on the Main Street nr.183. The cemetery on the area of 200 x 15 m features approximately 90 gravestones. Older graves are located in the lower and younger in the upper part of the cemetery. The cemetery is without proper maintenance for longer time, therefore overgrown with bushes and grass. The gravestones are simple, mostly from granite, but one can find marble as well. Inscriptions are in Hebrew, the only symbol appearing is the weeping willow. Elderly locals also remember an older Jewish cemetery supposedly located in the forest on the hill above the village.
