Old Jewish Cemetery, Prague

Wikipédia:

The Old Jewish Cemetery (Czech: Starý židovský hřbitov, German: Alter Jüdischer Friedhof) lies in the Josefov, the Jewish Quarter of Prague in the Czech Republic. It was in use from the early 15th century (the oldest preserved tombstone, the one of Avigdor Kara, dates back to 1439) until 1787. Its ancestor was a cemetery called "The Jewish Garden", which was found in archaeological excavations under the Vladislavova street, New Town.

The numbers of grave stones and numbers of people buried there are uncertain, because there are layers of tombs. However, it has been estimated that there are approximately 12,000 tombstones presently visible, and there may be as many as 100,000 burials in all. The most notable personalities buried in the Old Jewish Cemetery are Yehuda ben Bezalel known as the Maharal Rabbi Löw (d. 1609), Mordechai Maisel (d. 1601), David Gans (d. 1613) and David Oppenheim(d. 1736).

Antigo Cemitério Judeu de Praga

O Antigo Cemitério Judeu de Praga, encontra-se em Josefov. É o antigo bairro judeu de Praga, República Checa. Esteve um uso desde o início do século XV (a mais antiga tumba, do rabino Avigdor Kara, data de 1439) até 1787. Seu ancestral era um cemitério chamado “O Jardim Judeu”, que foi encontrado em escavações arquelógicas sob a rua Vladislavova, Nové Město (“cidade nova”, Praga).

O número de lápides e a quantidade de pessoas ali enterradas é incerto, pois há diversas camadas de tumbas sob as hoje visíveis. No entanto se estima que haja ali cerca de 12 mil sepulturas atualmente visíveis, podendo haver cerca de 100 mil no total. As mais importantes personalidades aí sepultadas são Yehuda ben Bezalel conhcecidos como o Maharal Judah Loew ben Bezalel (+1609), Mordechai Maisel (+1601), David Gans (+1613) e o rabino David Oppenheim (+1736).
