Graven op de Jodenkamp (Groningen)
Graves in the Jewish cemetery (Groningen). The extension of the chemical laboratory in 1954 at the Jodenkamp, the site of the earliest Jewish cemetery in Groningen, lead to the removal of graves. In 2005 it became clear that in 1954 only graves in the building trenches had been removed. Human remains of 31 human individuals dating from the late 18th/early 19th century were found. Most remains are of young children, but remains of adults were also recovered. One male individual had died at the age of 28-35 years. One other adult was a woman, but her age could not be established. The ages of the children range from two months to 16 years. However, most of the children had died before they were four years old.
