Cemetery notes and/or description:
oldest graves are dated 1203 (christian calendar). The "old jewish cemetery" served the assimilated wealthy German-speaking members of the Breslau Jewish community. The poorer, partly Yiddish-speaking members of the Jewish community were buried in the "New Jewish Cemetery". The cemetery was closed in 1942 (Christian calendar) during the Shoah. It is now part of the Wroclaw City Museum, and bears the graves of many prominent members of the Jewish community in what used to be Breslau, including the lawyer Ferdinand Lassalle who co-founded the German SPD, the biggest and oldest democratic party in Germany, and the parents of Catholic saint and martyr Edith Stein.
