“A complex of several cemeteries”
Reviewed November 5, 2011

The City of Deggendorf has several cemeteries, all located in a perimeter. The cemetery around the parish church has many old graves and crosses, such as the "skull tomb". At the Eastern exit of the Church before the small staircase which leads to the Schanzenweg and the opposite cemeteries one can n otice at left on the wall a notable granite stone: this stone commemorates the death of a Hungarian officer who was killed in 1743 in the War of the Austrian succession at the battle of the adjacent Geiersberg, still to be recognized is the inbedded hourglass, a symbol that life has ended. The Jewish part is located at the Pandurenweg, Kommunaler Friedhof, (Friedhof III), next to the “morgue”. 1945-1949 A Jewish communitylived in Deggendorf, composed of so-called “displaced persons” (survivors of the concentration camp Theresienstadt, a total of ca. 1500 people). People who died duringthis period were buried in a “Jewish Department” of the municipal cemetery, which is isolated by a hedge, commemorative plaque affixed 1989.
