General View of the Cemetery Area

Historical Data:  Drama has two Jewish cemeteries.  Today, only one Jewish family lives in Drama.  The Jewish Community of Drama was dissolved after the Holocaust.

Area/Capacity:  The largest cemetery is 934 sq. m. and the other is 840 sq. m.

Actual Condition:  Both cemeteries are fenced.  Part of the surrounding wall has collapsed.  Corrosion has damaged many of the tombs.

Necessary Restoration Works:  The cemeteries need to be cleaned up, and the tombs need conservation works.  Internal paths as well as the surrounding wall have to be constructed.

Estimated Cost:  41 million drs. ($117,000 US)

[The Synagogue of Drama does not exist.  It has been destroyed.]
