Putte, a small village that is partly in Holland and partly in Belgium, approximately 30 km north of Antwerp. The Dutch part of Putte is located in the province of North-Brabant in The Netherlands. The burials were mainly from Antwerp because the Jewish cemeteries in Belgium are not eternal. Coming from Antwerp, the cemeteries are the right side of the main road to Holland.
