CAROUGE/ GE: Print

Jewish cemetery: Located near Geneva (Switzerland) on the other side of the "Arve" river. The older inscriptions are from about 1779. The total number of stones is about 720. Entirely and very well renovated in 1996 by the "Communaute Israelite de Geneve". Because of the 1876 legal interdiction against the establishment of new cemeteries in the 'canton de Genève', a new cemetery was located in Etrembières (France). With its entry in Switzerland, the village of Veyrier was created in 1920. The cemetery of Carouge was used again in 1943-1944 during the German occupation of the Haute-Savoie.
