The Jewish Cemetery - Cimitirului Evreiesc


Photo was taken by Patrick Natanzon (Winter 2004)


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 graves. 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.

"SARA SCHMIDT Mutter des Kammersängers JOSEPH SCHMIDT gest. am 31./V.1950"

Joseph Schmidt famous Song:

Ein Lied geht um die Welt!

Ein Lied, das Euch gefällt!

Die Melodie erreicht die Sterne,

Jeder von uns hört sie so gerne!

Von Liebe singt das Lied,

Von Treue singt das Lied,

Und es wird nie verklingen,

Man wer es ewig singen.

Flieht auch die Zeit.

Das Lied bleibt in Ewigkeit.


Anonymous Jewish soldier from Russia, buried in Gura Humorului Jewish Cemetery. WWI

  - 1914 / 1918

If  someone will meet you,

and ask you,

what this stone is?

You will say!

Soldier from Russia found here a rest.

 Fell robbed from vehement enemy….

Indeed his name disappears,

but in front of GOD he will remembered.
