סמל העיר כפר סבא

חלקת מגורשי תל-אביב ויפו
בחלקה זאת קבורים תושבים מתל אביב, מיפו, ומהמושבות הדרומיות, אשר בשנת, במלחמת העולם הראשונה, גורשו מבתיהם על - ידי השלטון הטורקי, מחשש שישתפו פעולה עם הצבא הבריטי שכבש את דרום הארץ והתקדם צפונה.
המגורשים הגיעו למושבה כפר-סבא, התקבצו בחורשת פסקל-אוסישקין, והקימו שם את סוכותיהם. הצפיפות והלכלוך במקום היוו קרקע נוחה להתפשטות מגפת טיפוס הבהרות, וכ-240 מן המגורשים נספו מן המחלה.
תחילה, נקברו כל הנפטרים בבית הקברות הישן של המושבה, אבל כעבור כמה זמן הוחלט לקבור אותם בחלקה הזאת. יוסף פריבר, שהיה בן המושבה, נפטר גם כן מהמחלה.
כשהסתיימה המלחמה, נבנו מצבות מעל הקברים, אבל בשל נסיבות האירועים בשעת הקבורה עצמה, לא התאפשר לרשום את שמות הנפטרים על כל המצבות.

Hevra Kadisha Kfar Saba
These are the tombstones for the sword refugees from Jaffa and the colonies
Who perished in starvation and plague
In the years 1914-1919
And were buried here without mentioning their names

Tel Aviv-Jaffa Evacuess Plot of Land
Residents of Tel Aviv, Jaffa, and the southern colonies, who in the First World War, were expelled from their homes by the Turkish government for fear of collaborating with the British army that occupied the south of the country and advanced north, are buried in this plot.
The deportees arrived at the Kfar Saba colony, gathered in the Pascal-Ussishkin grove, and established their Sukkot there. The overcrowding and dirt at the site provided a fertile ground for the spread of the typhus epidemic, and about 240 of the deportees perished from the disease.
At first, all the deceased were buried in the old cemetery of the colony, but after a while it was decided to bury them in this plot. Joseph Freiber, who was a member of the colony, also died of the disease.
When the war ended, tombstones were built over the graves, but due to the circumstances of the events at the time of the burial itself, it was not possible to write the names of the deceased on all the tombstones.
