Cemetery

Nearby lies the Jewish Cemetery, a somber reminder of the 18th-century Jewish history in the region, contrasting starkly with the atrocities of the Holocaust. The cemetery holds the memories of generations who lived in Oświęcim before the Holocaust, and visiting it is a somber yet essential experience for those seeking a deeper understanding of the area's history.

About 1,000 tombstones (Hebrew: matzevot) with Hebrew, German, Polish and Yiddish inscriptions survived to this day. The last person to be buried here is Szymon Kluger (1925-2000).

Today, several local and international groups help clean up the space within the framework of the museum’s educational projects.

Visiting the cemetery is possible upon prior online reservation and collecting the key from our staff.
