Description

This cemetery, with an area of 8,621 m², belonging to the largest and most important Jewish community in Burgenland, was completely destroyed by the Nazis. The sparse remains of the headstones were used to construct a memorial in the middle of the cemetery. The Chevra Kadischa donated 150 headstones, which the Association Schalom created bases for and installed in the cemetery.
