Location Information

The cemetery is located at the junction between the Foreningsgaten and the Industrigaten, and forms part of the Pauli Norra Kyrkogard. The Jewish Cemetery is contained within the walled enclosure, the entrance to which is through the gate a few metres from the road junction.

Historical Information

Although Sweden retained her neutrality throughout the Second World War, a number of Commonwealth servicemen are buried there, most of them airmen who failed to return from bombing raids over Germany or German occupied territories.

Malmo Jewish Cemetery contains the graves of two Commonwealth airmen of the Second World War.
