The Jüdische Friedhof Jenfelder Strasse is a Jewish cemetery in Hamburg-Tonndorf . From 1887 to 1942, mainly members of the Jewish community of Wandsbek were buried here. After the devastation of the National Socialist era, only part of it is preserved as a cemetery.
The community in Wandsbek, which has existed since the 17th century, buried its dead in the old Königsreihe cemetery . After this was completely occupied, a new area was built in Jenfelder Straße (formerly Jenfelder Weg) and set up a cemetery there for an initial 388 graves. It opened in the summer of 1877. In the same year a morgue, a Kohanim hall and an apartment for the cemetery attendant were built. The entire area would have allowed an expansion to 1000 graves. Between 1887 and 1942, 143 dead were buried in the cemetery. Since 1919 urn graves have also been allowed, even if cremations are not allowed according to traditional Jewish understanding. In 1913, 1915 and 1934, strips of land were sold to the Reichsbahn.
The cemetery was desecrated during the November pogrom . In 1943 the site had to be forcibly sold to the state. A warehouse for potatoes was built on the reserve area and other parts of the cemetery were devastated.
As a result of the return process , which lasted until 1959, the undeveloped part of the cemetery was returned to the Jewish communities. In this also, against the actual commitment of the Hamburg community 39 dead, exhumed and partially within the cemetery reburied . Other graves are located under the warehouse or have been destroyed. 44 tombstones have been preserved in the cemetery. Of the original horticultural design, only a row of linden trees can be seen on the east side. The dilapidated warehouse is no longer used today. The original buildings of the cemetery have not been preserved.
According to the planning concept for the construction of the S4 , the dilapidated warehouse is to be demolished and space for new tracks and a noise barrier will be created. The graves still presumed under the hall were included in the planning and the project was agreed with the Jewish community.
