Jewish Cemetery in Athens
The oldest cemetery of the Jewish Community of Athens occupies a total area of 2,500 sq.m. within the First Cemetery of Athens. The graves date back to the early 20th century; after World War II, the cemetery reached full capacity. It is enclosed by a wall and is protected by security personnel.
Jewish Cemetery in Nikaia
The second cemetery of the Jewish Community of Athens occupies 20,000 sq.m. within the Third Cemetery of Athens at 7 Pireos St. in Nikaia (a western suburb of Athens). It became active after World War II and is still in use today, although the remaining space is very limited. It is enclosed by a wall and is protected by security personnel. The earthquake in 1999 damaged the building used for the burial services, but a Community benefactor restored it through donations.
