Jewish cemetery (Küps)
The cemetery was in the middle of the village and was bordered by Kulmbacher Straße, Ringstraße and Judengasse. It has been documented since 1597, and a tombstone was dated 1611. In 1830 the burials were stopped because the cemetery was in the middle of town. The Jewish community was asked to move to an area outside the village or to use the cemetery in Burgkunstadt . During the Nazi dictatorship , the market town acquired the cemetery in 1939, removed the tombstones and, from 1944, used it for purposes other than intended. Today there is a playground on the site. Efforts are being made to point out the history of the burial site.
