Bad Vilbel Jewish cemetery
Jews lived in Vilbel around the turn of the century. The existing hall designation "Am Judenkirchhof" outside the village is an indication that there was an older, abandoned Jewish cemetery in Vilbel. The existing cemetery on Gronauer Weg, below the Christian cemetery, with an area of 7.92 acres was laid out in 1845.
The Jewish population of Vilbel was concentrated in Frankfurter Strasse near the synagogue (Frankfurter Strasse 95). The last burials in the cemetery were those of the couple Julius and Flora Grünebaum on February 13, 1936 and September 24, 1937. At the time of the November pogroms in 1938 , the Jewish community had already died out due to emigration. In 1944 the cemetery was severely desecrated and the cemetery wall was badly damaged. After the Second World War , the cemetery was restored. It is no longer possible to assign the tombstones to graves.
