Tallinn Magasini tn. Jewish cemetery


Opened in 1790 (N. Gens). One can see a fenced Jewish cemetery on the 1856 Tallinn map. According to N. Gens the fences were made in 1845. On 1.10.1910 the cemetery was officially closed as the new cemetery was opened in Rahumäe. Still the last burial was around 1936. "Waba Maa" wrote on 1.6.1930 that the cemetery is now officially closed. The last burial was that of Moses Biek on 25.5.1930.

Schaje Levinovitsch's mausoleum, which was designed by the architect Jacques Rosenbaum was completed in the autumn of 1910. The cemetery (with mausoleum) was demolished in 1967 when a car park was built on that place.

During one night in 1973 the Holocaust memorial was built (it was not allowed for many years as "we do not need special memorials for Jewish people"). In 2009 it was moved to a new place near the entrance.
