The Jewish cemetery at Fürth, Germany, in the 18th century. As Jewish graves may not be re-used or moved, communities take great pains in maintaining ownership of cemeteries. Even after the Jews leave, cemeteries continue to be looked after by other communities. Today, Jewish cemeteries are often the only reminder of the presence of Jewish communities in the past.
