The Jewish cemetery of St. Wendel is located outside St. Wendel along the county road (L132) halfway between St. Wendel and Baltersweiler, where the Eisenbach Road goes down to Urweiler. The cemetery in our local slang is called, like the area surrounding it: Joorre-kay-opp. Jurre = slang for Juden (plural of Jew = Jude), kay-opp = slang for Kirchhof = churchyard = cemetery. There are also some Russian DPs buried at the southern edge of the cemetery. Source: Roland Geiger, St. Wendel; This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
