US Commission No. SLCE000311

Komarno is located SE of Bratislava. The flat urban cemetery site is separate but near other cemeteries. Inscriptions mark the pre-burial house. Reached by turning directly off a public road, access is open to all via a masonry wall and locking gate. Present size of the cemetery is 150x200 meters.

100-500 marble and granite 19th-20th century tombstones, in original locations, are flat shaped stones, finely smoothed and inscribed stones, or double tombstones with Hebrew and Hungarian inscriptions. The cemetery contains special memorial monuments to Holocaust victims. Within the cemetery are a pre-burial house, a well, and a gravediggers' house. The local Jewish community owns property used for Jewish cemetery only. Adjacent properties are residential. The cemetery is smaller than in 1939 because of new roads or highways. Occasional private visitors go to the site. Restoration: re-erection of stones, patching broken stones, cleaning stones, and clearing vegetation. There is a regular caretaker. No threats.
