Old Jewish Cemetery
Spanning across 2.93 acres (1.19 hectares), the Old Jewish Cemetery has tombstones dating back to the 13th-century. It was last used in 1828 and is the second oldest of its kind in Germany. It is situated near the Jewish Museum and had more than 4,000 of its graves destroyed during Hitler's era, yet has many that are still intact. The cemetery is now part of a memorial which contains the names of 11,134 Frankfurt Jews who were murdered by the Nazis.
