In 1857 Gura
Humorului had a Jewish population of 190 souls. In that
year also the Jewish cemetery was established. That
cemetery was active until 1920.
In 1920 the "New" cemetery was established right near
the "Old" one, and it is still open today.
This cemetery (the old and the new) has about 2060
Stones beautifully cared for, many in German.
The new part was renovated recently by The Association
of Gura - Humora Jewish Community Descendants.
I would welcome any photos of Gura Humorului Jewish
cemetery and tombstones (with transcripts of the
inscriptions if possible) to use on this page.
