British Cemetery of Madrid

1st January 1970

The Jews came back to Madrid only in the 1850s, sporadically and in an unorganized way. These were shopkeepers and bankers who, among other activities, were involved in the creation of the railroads. The best known of these families were the Bauers, who represented the Rothschild Bank. Since they did not have their own cemetery, they created a special section in the English cemetery in the first years of the twentieth century. A monument inspired by ancient Egypt houses te remains of Gustave Bauer (1867-1916), Manolin Bauer (1898-1906), and Ida Luisa Bauer (1906-08). Another thirty tombs remind us of the existence and origins of this small community in the early twentieth century.
