The Oberbronn cemetery   is quite small: it has 170 graves. The oldest dates from 1814 and the last from 1937. Before the creation of this necropolis, the place of burial was in Ettendorf, which is at a certain distance. It is surprising to note the vitality of this community far from the centers, and which knew how to create its cemetery barely 23 years after the emancipation of the Jews in 1791. 
This necropolis also served for the smaller communities of the surrounding villages: Zinswiller, Offwiller and even Baerenthal in near Moselle, with the Fraenckel and Hirsch families. One can find tombs of the maternal family of Léon Blum there, among others. 

Guided tours on request.
