NOTES:

  • Only five Jews lived in Bad Wörishofen in 1933, who officially belonged to the Jewish community of Memmingen.
  • This cemetery holds a mass grave with a plaque commemorating the Jewish victims of the Dachau satellite concentration camp of Schwaben-Schwaben, who survived the war but who died in Bad Wörishofen soon after liberation. The plaque also bears the names of LT. TH. Eisenberg and that of Miss Eisenberg, USA. The plaque was erected by the Jewish committee in Bad Wörishofen in May 1945.
  • The mass grave is stocked with plants and very well maintained.
