    About Baron Hirsch Cemetery

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.


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