German War Graves Neuer Friedhof

The Neuer Friedhof (New Cemetery) in Potsdam was opened in 1867. The cemetery contains wargraves from the First and Second World Wars. The cemetery was heavy damaged during a bombardment on 14th April 1945. After the Second World War it was neglected. Since East and West Germany came together again, slowly the sight is being restored.

Besides the 2409 graves from World War One and Two victims, the cemetery contains graves of and a monument to victims of the 1945 bombardment and a monument to victims of the Soviet Union and their allies.
