The old Jewish cemetery in Tallinn, now only marked by a small memorial stone in a wall surrounding a wasteland, will be repaired in the coming years, the city council has said. The plans will cost an estimated €40,000 and will include a memorial area and an information board about the site’s history.
The old Jewish cemetery on Magasini Street, Veerenni was built in the 18th century, and destroyed in the 1960s.
The city plans to spend up to €40,000 on the project, but it is too early to discuss the cost of cleaning up the cemetery, as it is still at the draft level. Svet said the city wants to complete the design work this year and submit a proposal for financing the work next year.
