LA CHAUX-DE-FONDS/ NE: Print

Jewish cemetery: The cemetery is located in "Les Eplatures" between La Chaux-de-Fonds and Le Locle. There are hundreds of stones. The oldest inscription is 5 December 1872 (Cecile Hirsch). The Jewish community of La Chaux-de-Fonds principally comes originally from the village of Hegenheim (Alsace, near Basle, Switzerland) and from others villages of Alsace. The cemetery and its little chapel are active. The same architect erected the very beautiful synagogue of La Chaux-de-Fonds (located between the "rue de la Serre" and the "rue du Parc") about 1900 and the synagogue destroyed by the German troops in Strasbourg, France. The synagogue of La Chaux-de-Fonds was recently entirely renovated. Source: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ;
