Cemetery Simmering/Zentralfriedhof Tor IV

Cemetery

 

Description

In order to keep up with the increasing number of burials resulting from the growing community, at the turn of the 20th century the Jewish Community felt it necessary to purchase a reserve property bordering Schwechat, for the intended expansion of the cemetery. This 241,626 m² cemetery has been serving the Jewish Community as a burial site since 1916, although burials still take place at the 1st Gate, the “old” cemetery. Until today, 60,000 community members, including victims of Nazi persecution and exhumed dead from the Döbling cemetery, have found their last place of rest here.
