The Old Jewish Cemetery

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