life in a small Town in Central Netherlands
Thursday, July 19, 2012
During jogging I peeped over the fence of the Jewish cemetery. Before the war there was a small Jewish community in Woerden, really small, but big enough to have a butcher. I live in the area of Woerden where most Jews lived. Some of the houses are known to have been Jewish property. The cemetery is proof there was a community in Woerden. It's funny, this cemetery is in the center of town, but for some reason we are hardly aware that it's there.
City in the west of the Dutch province Utrecht, founded by the Romans in 40 AD as a castellum at the Northern Fronteer of the Roman Empire. Received city rights in 1372, forensic city for North and South Holland's bigger cities, 33.650 inhabitants.
Woerden Community contains the towns and villages: Harmelen, Kamerik and Zegveld.
