Enormous effort was required to preserve at least part of this historic burial ground of a once important Jewish community. Both vast engineering feats and political persuasion were needed against the encroachment of a highway project and Communist disinterest.

I had no idea what we were about to see. The guide, who is not Jewish, knew so much about where we were and who we were seeing. He was able to answer all our questions with out hesitations. This was absolutely the highlight our our trip to Bratislava.

This memorial is built at the place of a 17th. century Jewish cemetery. It is the burial place and memorial of Moses Sofer who was a leading orthodox rabbi in the 19th. Century. The calm of this memorial is striking.

It was a very moving experience but you MUST call the memorial's caretaker in advance. People go there to pray at the Jewish sage's grave.

A must see for the Jewish people. The graves are those of famous Rabbis. The most famous is the grave of the Chatam Sofer.
