About UsHistory

Baron Hirsch Cemetery was established in 1899, and is a large Jewish cemetery in the neighborhood of Graniteville, on Staten Island, in New York City, and named for Maurice de Hirsch.

The cemetery is composed of about 500 plot or sections belonging to synagogues, Jewish associations, family circles, and most commonly, landsmanshaftn. Most plots are entered via gates or pairs of stone columns. Some of the landsmanshaftn have monuments dedicated to Holocaust victims of the Nazis in their ancestral town.
