The forgotten Jewish cemetery 🪦 in Zeltingen 🇩🇪

Jan 17, 2022

Until the second half of the 19th Century "Im Engelter", according to the field name, found their last tranquillity here, i.e. in the vineyards outside the village, as was usual at the time. Only a few stone witnesses remind you of this. Towards the end of the 19th Century, a new Jewish cemetery was established on a cadastral parcel located in a northeastern direction above the village in the forest, which still has over 40 graves from the period from 1885 to 1930. That's why this cemetery was almost forgotten.
