The small Jewish section in Ljubljana’s municipal cemetery, Zale (at Pod Hmeljniki 2), was established in 1926, but was moved to its present location in 1964. It includes about two dozen or so marked graves. Almost all the graves are very simple, with a headstone and a lower curb-like enclosure; only the name of the deceased and the date of their death are stated. One headstone marks the grave of an unidentified Jewish victim of the Second World War. There is also a small Holocaust monument, erected in 1964, a horizontal, rectangular slab with the inscription: “Remember the Jews, fallen soldiers and victims of Fascism, 1941-1945.”
