  • When Walldorf cemetery was created, a cemetery hall was also built, which is preserved to this day.
  • The cemetery contains a memorial column in honour of Jewish Soldiers who died during WW1.
  • The new cemetery hall of the city cemetery contains a memorial plaque, dedicated in 1985, in honour of the fate of the local Jewish community.
  • After a desecration of the cemetery in 1990, the topped gravestones were re-erected and securely anchored. (Cemetery documentation: page 3).
