This cemetery was used between 1945 and 1948 mostly as a mass grave for Jewish survivors from the Kaufering concentration camp, who were originally housed in a nearby institution for the physically handicapped, today known as the Magnus-Heim. Camp survivors who died in the institution were buried here. Apart from the 27 gravestones along the wall, 94 more Jewish victims of the Nazi incarceration were also buried here in a mass grave. There is a large memorial stone in the cemetery in honour of these Jewish victims of the Nazi terror.
