The Jewish Cemetery of Graz is a Jewish cemetery founded in 1864/65 in what is now the Wetzelsdorf district of Graz.

During the November pogroms of 1938, the morgue was set on fire and destroyed on November 10, 1938. The site was expropriated and sold to the city of Graz. With the exception of the destroyed ceremonial hall and a few graves, however, the cemetery remained intact until the end of the war and was restituted to the Jewish Community in 1946. On 11 November 1991, a new ceremonial hall was opened following the "Remembrance/Commemorative Year 1938/88". The cemetery is a listed building.
