  2nd Jeiwsj Cemetary in Zaltbommel

This is also a Jewish cemetary, and it is located just a few meters away from the first one. It was used from 1786 to 1830. About 120 people are burried here and only a few grave stones still remain. In 1810 Napolean ordered that noone could be burried within the city walls. Therefor a third cemetary had to be built. You are not allowed to enter the cemetary, but you can get a view of it from the old fortifications.
