Execution of works on the cemetary wall and monument

Renewal of the wall coping and restoration of the entrance gate

In one part of the circumferential wall of the cemetery remembrance plaques which, even at an earlier date, could no longer be attributed were mounted and the wall was then converted into a wall of remembrance. At this part of the wall, the wall coping was renewed in such a way that it also protected against the weather.

Renewal of the monument's concrete slab

The existing monument, which commemorates the Jewish forced laborers murdered in the Deutschkreutz camp was renovated by replacing the large concrete slab.

Clearing and leveling work

The cemetery was mown and leveled in consensus with the Rabbi. Wildly growing plants which endnaged safety of movement and the substance of the headstones were removed.

Contracting services inventory and monument protection
