The Jewish cemetery of Brezno is located on a hill in the eastern urban district called Dúbravka, in the northern part of the municipal cemetery. The 13 by 200 m large compound features about 100 graves from the second half of the 19th century until World War II. Inscriptions are mostly in two languages; the Hebrew is combined with Hungarian, German or Slovak. Gravestones were made of black Swedish granite or grey marble, both to be found in two famous stone- cutter’s workshops - Horn and Apfel - from the nearby town of Banská Bystrica. The cemetery is maintained by the local municipality. The Holocaust memorial plaque has been mounted at the entrance gate.
