Jewish Cemetery Belgrade – Almost a sanctuary

arts&culture
Art & culture

The "Jewish Cemetery" in Belgrade feels like a calm, green stone garden. Even the guard is a very interesting, dedicated man with lots of stories...

The Belgrade Jewish cemetery is located right across the Belgrade New Cemetery, and even though it is hidden behind the walls, its gates are open to anyone every day of the week except on Saturdays (in Judaism's, Sabbath is the day of rest) and during Jewish Holidays.

What you will enter is actually the Sephardic Jews cemetery, which is now in use and where funerals still take place. On the inside wall, there is a rather old sign which says that you can get the key to the Ashkenazic Jews cemetery from the guard, on the first floor of the building. Honestly, it is one of the things which makes this place feel like a calm & green, stone garden - and the guard is a very interesting dedicated man, who once shared a lot of stories with me.

Apart from the lovely trees and well-kept graves of citizens and famous Jews, at the end of the lane you will find the Memorial to the Holocaust victims and Jewish soldiers who died in World War II. Its author is acclaimed monument architect Bogdan Bogdanović (here you can find some more photographs).

Finally, here you can find a useful video explaining the Jewish history and cemeteries in Belgrade. If you are interested in the local Jewish community, I advise that you also check out The Jewish Historical Museum in Belgrade (here is a detailed publication on it). Nevertheless, you don't need the facts in order to enjoy this peaceful place full of history.
