US Commission No. SLCE000358

Galanta is located E of Bratislava. The isolated flat suburban location has no sign or marker. Reached by turning directly off a public road, access is open with permission via a continuous masonry wall and locking gate. The approximate size of cemetery is now 100x200 meters. 500-5000 marble and granite 18th to 20th century stones, most in original location, are flat shaped stones, finely smoothed and inscribed stones or double tombstones with Hebrew, German and Hungarian inscriptions. Some tombstones have metal fences around graves. Within the limits of the cemetery is a pre-burial house. The local Jewish community owns the property used as Jewish cemetery only. Adjacent properties are commercial or industrial and residential. Cemetery boundaries are unchanged since 1939. Private visitors visit frequently. Now, there is regular caretaker. [pre-1997]
