Jewish Cemetery [Aug 2015]

Old Portuguese Jewish Cemetery: "The Old Jewish Cemetery contains eight aboveground vaults with gravestones dating from 1563, almost a century before the first Jewish settlement on Curacao, the neighboring island. However, regular use of the cemetery did not begin until 1837. Most Aruban Jews were buried in Curacao, their initial stop during migration." Source: Freedman, Warren.
