From its foundation in 1852 until the present day, the Jewish cemetery in Brno-Zidenice has served its purpose. On an area of 3 hectares, over 11,400 people are laid to rest here.

Among those buried here are figures from the fields of politics, culture, science, economics and religion, such as Rabbis Baruch Placzek and Richard Feder, journalist Hieronymus Lorm, philanthropist Heinrich Gomperz, actor Hugo Haas, prima ballerina Alice Flachová and psychologist Vera Capponi. The guided tour will explain the history of the cemetery and the fate of the members of prominent factory and industrial families buried there, as well as the traditions and customs of Jewish burial.
