English description
Jews settled in Bačko Gradište in the late 18th century. At the end of the 19th century, 181 Jews lived in this village. There is data confirming that a Jewish cemetery and a prayer house were founded in the mid-19th century. The new synagogue was erected on Veliki Sokak (Great Street). There was also a school next to the building of the new synagogue, which at the beginning of the 20th century had 31 pupils. Only 6 Jews survived the Holocaust. The synagogue building was demolished in 1956. There is no memorial-plaque.
