The arrangement of the burial
On January 28th 2004
three students went to the Jewish graveyard to
create a sketch of the burial ground:
The burial ground that is recognizable is possibly
placed in the middle of the area of the graveyard.
Eight graves are definitely recognizable; theier
existence was mentioned in the technical literature
in 1957: "From all funerals a total of eight marked
tombs have been left, six of them have gravestones,
two only a bordering. The stones were put up in the
1920’s and 1930’s, the names Kaufmann, Salomon, Cahn,
Tobias and Sommer are still well known to old people
from Zündorf." (StR Heinrich Schneider, in: KStA,
7.5.1957, S. 10).
We detected that all
graves were created in order and rows. Four dead
people were buried in a row (cf. upper row). A big
grave possibly takes up the size of two single
graves (2nd row), at times big graves are
dimensioned a little smaller (4th row). Nevertheless,
no certain arrangement exists in the rows. Because
the graves are of different sizes, it was not
possible to order them in a certain order or row.
Further it is remarkable that bigger graves were
found in the middle of the graveyard.
The photo of Dr. R. Rieger, Urbach, from the 50’s
points out the location of the graveyard from the
perspective of the sketch:
