The earliest known Jewish community was about 1888 (1868?). The pre-WWII Jewish population was about 2,000. The unlandmarked cemetery was established about 1870 with last Jewish burial 1944-45. The isolated urban hillside has no sign or marker. Reached by turning directly off a public road, access is open to all with no wall, fence, or gate. Before WWII and now the cemetery size is .08 ha. 1 to 20 stones, not in original location with less than 25% topped or broken, date from 1882. The 19th and 20th century granite, limestone, or sandstone rough stones/boulders or flat shaped stones with iron decoration or lettering have Hebrew and German inscriptions. The cemetery contains no known mass graves. The municipality owns property used for recreation (park, playground, and sports field.) Adjacent property is recreational, commercial or industrial, and residential. Occasionally, private visitors and local residents stop. It was vandalized prior to World War II but not in the last ten years. No maintenance. Within the limits of the cemetery are no structures. Vegetation overgrowth in the cemetery is a constant problem, disturbing graves and damaging stones.
