The Chatam Sofer Memorial is an underground burial shrine of the renowned 19th century rabbi Moshe Schreiber, known as the Chatam Sofer. The Rabbi is considered to be one of the leading Orthodox rabbinical figures, and until his death in 1839 he headed the famous Pressburger Yeshiva. He was buried at the Old Jewish cemetery as one of the last funerals, because soon the cemetery was closed and they used a new [Orthodox] cemetery nearby. The rabbi's grave, together with other 23 graves, was spared of destruction in 1943, when the tunnel was constructed. The underground space underwent radical redevelopment in 1999-2002.
