Jewish Cemetery Vught - Vught

N 51.655183 / E 5.2794045

Although the Vught community was not an independent Jewish community, a Jewish cemetery was established here in 1771. It belonged to the Jewish community of Den Bosch but not even the Jews of Bosschen were granted permission to bury their loved ones here until 1790.

During the Second World War the first victim of the neighboring Camp Vught was buried at the Jewish cemetery in Vught. His name was Elias Koopman. He came from Amsterdam and was buried in this cemetery in January 1943. He is the only survivor of the concentration camp buried here. All other victims of Camp Vught were cremated in the camp itself and scattered in the ashes of the camp.
