Tragically, the Jewish Cemetery on ul. Głogowska, founded in 1804 after Prussian authorities liquidated a necropolis located in what is now Plac Wolności, was fully razed by the Nazis during WWII, with most of the grounds subsequently incorporated into the Poznań International Fair. In 2007-2008, thanks to the Committee for the Preservation of Jewish Cemeteries in Europe and the Poznań Jewish Community, a small part of the cemetery was reconstructed in the only open space available - a small courtyard at ul. Głogowska 26A. The commemorative site comprises modern tombstones of Rabbi Akiva Eger, his wife and son, and two other Poznań rabbis. Entry is by previous arrangement only, but you can peek through the gate anytime; call +48 726 100 199 or e-mail gekafka@jewish.org.pl to set up your visit.
