The Jewish cemetery of Malacky is located in the industrial area outside of town center, along the main road to Stupava. The cemetery is only accessible through the compound of the factory producing mobile houses. The forested area includes about twenty fallen Hebrew-German tombstones and several opened burial plots. The cemetery was heavily devastated by the army during the Communist period. On the compound corner stands the ruined structure, probably once serving as the burial chapel of the prominent Spitzer family that sponsored the synagogue construction. Hence we can anticipate that the chapel was also designed by the prolific Viennese architect Wilhelm Stiassny. The quadratic structure features a Moorish horse-shoe arch and the metallic frame of the onion dome, similar to those applied at design of the synagogue building in the center of town.
