Továrenská  3 Cemetery: Malacky Jewish cemetery located in the industrial area outside of the town center along the main road to Stupava is only accessible through the mobile home factory property. The forested area includes about twenty toppled Hebrew-German gravestones and several opened burial plots. The cemetery was devastated by the army during the Communist period. On the compound corner stands a ruined structure, probably once the mausoleum of the prominent Spitzer family that sponsored the synagogue construction. If so, then the chapel also was designed by the prolific Viennese architect Wilhelm Stiassny. The quadratic structure features a Moorish horse-shoe arch and the metallic frame of the onion dome, similar to that applied to the synagogue building in the center of town. To visit the compound of the private company Schafy, the visit must be first arranged with the company management. Source and photo. [Sep 2014]
