Category: Jewish Sites and Cemeteries Region: Cheb, Františkovy Lázně and their surroundings Town: Malá Stiboř

 

The village of Malá Šitboř is situated approximately 20 kilometres east of Cheb and 13 kilometres northwest of Kynžvart.

The Jewish cemetery with a triangular ground plan is located about 1 kilometre from the village and it was founded in the 19th century. It served as the burial ground for Jewish inhabitants from the villages of Malá Šitboř and nearby Milíkov. The cemetery served its purpose until the early 20th century as documented by the youngest tombstone from the year 1900. After World War II, the burial ground was becoming desolate. Its restoration was launched in the 1990s. All tombstones were erected, the inscriptions on the tombstones were recorded and a map of the cemetery was made. Today, you may find 90 tombstones, the oldest dating to 1821.
