The New Jewish Cemetery replaced the former Old Jewish Cemetery located south of the Center City area in Maskavas Forštate. When the Soviets reoccupied Riga following World War II they desecrated the Old Jewish Cemetery and moved all the graves to the New Jewish Cemetery and turned the Old Jewish Cemetery into a park. There is a monument at the entrance to what is now a park.
