The Jewish cemetery in Murska Sobota existed from the first half of the 19th century. By the end of World War II there were ca. 65 tombstones, but in the lat 1980s only 38 stones remained. The cemetery chapel was demolished in 1963.
In 1985, the municipality arranged a memorial park, which occupies part of the former cemetery. Eight tombstones were chosen to remain, while the others were sold. The black marble tombstone of Edmund Fürst, the head of the community, serves as an entrance sign.
