Cemetery - At the Red Stocking

There are three Jewish cemeteries in Halberstadt: Am Roten Strumpf (1644 – beginning of the 19th century), Am Berge (19th century) and Klein Quenstedter Straße (from 1895).

Cemetery “Am Roten Strumpf

The name Am Roten Strumpf (By the red sock) refers to its previous use as an execution site. Here, in the oldest cemetery with around 2,000 graves, there are about 350 magnificent baroque gravestones that have been preserved. Richly decorated, they chronicle the great importance of the Halberstadt community and its members. Typical symbols such as the Priestly Blessing or the Levite pitcher can be found.  The gravestone of Court Jew Berend Lehman (1661 – 1730) is of particular significance. It leans against the northern cemetery wall.
