Caretaker is Mr. Niznansky.
The urban hillside, separate but near other cemeteries, has no sign or marker. Reached by crossing private property, access is open to all via a masonry wall and locking gate. 500-5000 18th-20th century marble, granite, limestone, and sandstone flat shaped tombstones (some with carved relief decorations), finely smoothed and inscribed stones, or double tombstones with Hebrew and German inscriptions are in original locations. The site is Jewish cemetery only. Adjacent properties are residential. Occasionally, private visitors stop. Restoration: patching broken stones, re-erection of stones, and clearing vegetation. A regular caretaker now cares for the cemetery. Within the cemetery limits is a pre-burial house. No threats.
