New Cemetery (At Poniatowskiego Street) Print


When the ‘Old Cemetery’ had no more room to expand, a much larger one was established in Gliwice’s “Zatorze” district.

 The Viennese architect Max Fleischer, designer of many synagogues and one of Vienna’s city halls, designed a splendid Gothic-Revival pre-burial hall which was built there in 1902-1903.
There have been some 800 burials at the cemetery from the beginning of the 20th century until the present day. The hall, neglected since World War II, is being renovated.
