The cemetery is fenced, in the middle of the forest and not very well signposted. On weekdays you approach it acoustically. In the direction of the path, large-caliber cartridges crash into targets on the Bundeswehr shooting range. When you reach the supraregional cemetery from earlier centuries, in which the Jews had to be buried outside their places of residence, in contrast to the Christian population, you will find a small information board on the fence. The Nazis desecrated this cemetery and paved ravines with the gravestones. The memory of living Jews of their ancestors should be erased. Some fragments were brought back and attached to concrete steles, making vandalism difficult. In this place you can make the term racism, which should not be abstract and not only between white and black Americans, understandable to your children and grandchildren.

This historic place literally takes the language away and I was very moved by the many moss-overgrown tombstones and the Hebrew inscribed gravestones. Even more touching is the history of this cemetery and the grave stones that had been installed by the Nazis as gutters in the hollows. I found it strange to hear in the background again and again the shots of the training area, which adjoins directly to the cemetery. This will certainly save you a weekend.

Each time we approach the old Jewish cemetery with awe. A very special charisma emanates from this place. Over the wall and through the fence we try to decipher the inscriptions and dates on the ancient tombstones. Information boards also explain the history of the place!
