HUNGEN: 35410 Hesse (Gerz)

The Hungen Jews acquired rights to their own cemetery in 1563. The cemetery
was already about 40 years old then. Jews from nearby villages were also
buried there. The cemetery area is located on Friedberger Straße, opposite
Am Grenzwall Straße. Its size is 31.77 acre. The last funeral took place in
May 1946. On 26 August 1990, a memorial was dedicated in memory of the
former Jewish inhabitants.
