Burials took place in the new Jewish cemetery on Heer Street between 1913 and 1943. The memorial includes the central development with the lime trees, the 13 Jewish gravestones, the memorial stone for the Shoah and the gravestones for the 22 Soviet forced laborers who were buried here during World War II.
There is also an information board here with the locations where the Stolpersteine were laid, which can also be visited via a marked circular route. Other places of remembrance of Jewish fellow citizens are a memorial stone at Kirchstr. 17 and the old Jewish cemetery at Schwarzenberg, which was replaced by the new one due to difficult access.

The information board around the Stolpersteine in the town center invites you to take a walk through Meinerzhagen (see also the attached picture files):

Welcome to the circular walk Jewish Life in Meinerzhagen. The approx. 1.5 km long route leads along the ten places where Stolpersteine were laid [insert: two yellow symbols see legend with 1 and 10 in between hyphen ], one of the two memorial plaques of the town of Meinerzhagen [red squares A + B] and the former location of the Jewish prayer room [red square C].

Easily accessible from here are also the two Jewish cemeteries on the Schwarzenberg (1.3 km) and on the Heerstraße (1km). Their history and the names of those who died here are told on information boards on site. Only in the new cemetery graves and gravestones have been preserved. They also bear witness to more than 125 years of Jewish life in Meinerzhagen.

One stone - one name - one person

There are 47 Stolpersteine for Jewish citizens at the ten places where they were laid.

Their families had their home here, worked as cattle and vegetable traders, sold clothes and fabrics, were members of the singing, gymnastics or shooting club. During the National Socialist era, they were humiliated and disenfranchised. They were deprived of their livelihood by bans on selling and trading. In the end, they were forced to flee abroad or were deported and murdered as nameless numbers. The Stolpersteine in front of their last freely chosen residence give them back their name and dignity, they are once again "among us".

Detailed information about the tour and individual fates can be found in the flyer of the Initiative Stolpersteine Meinerzhagen-Kierspe in the Touristinfo [sign ( i )], via the QR code I or the homepage In addition, via the QR code Ii to the WDR app "Stolpersteine NRW-Gegen das Vergessen". It offers the individual biography for each stone, partly with additional material such as photos, audios or graphic stories.
