RÜSSELSHEIM: 65428 Hesse
(RUESSELSHEIM)
see Gross Gerau
Burials for this town were in Gross Gereau until 1923. There were only a total of 6 burials here. There might have also been some during WWII from Gross Gereau. The then mayor of Russelsheim is said to have stated, "As soon as R. is "judenfrei" (free of all Jews) this cemetery too will be destroyed." For years before this time, Russelsheim also used a separate section of the general cemetery with no separate wall. p. 375 Verschwundene Nachbarn, by Angelika Schleindl. (see details in Gross Gereau)
