  • Pardubice - Jewish cemetery
    Pardubice - Jewish cemetery. Land for a cemetery was sold to Pardubice Jews in 1624. Even after expansion the cemetery was no longer sufficient; in 1883 the so-called New Cemetery was established. Upon orders from the German office the cemetery was liquidated in 1939 and remains were transferred to a common grave at the New Cemetery along with several tombstones, which were placed to the left of the entrance. In this cemetery is located a memorial with the names of 542 Pardubice victims of the Holocaust and a second dedicated to seven unknown victims that did not survive transport from Auschwitz in January 1945. Inscriptions on the tombstones are in Hebrew, German, and Czech.
