Curacao’s Jewish history dying with 1600s cemetery
CORRECTS TO SAY CEMETERY WAS ESTABLISHED IN THE 1650s, NOT 1950s — In this Nov. 12, 2012 photo, a tombstone lays in the Beth Haim cemetery in Blenheim on the outskirts of Willemstad, Curacao. Beth Haim, believed to be one of the oldest Jewish cemeteries in the Western Hemisphere, established in the 1650s and considered an important landmark on an island where the historic downtown has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is slowly fading in the Caribbean sun. Headstones are pockmarked with their inscriptions faded, stone slabs that have covered tombs in some cases for hundreds of years are crumbling into the soil, marble that was once white is now gray, likely from the acrid smoke that spews from the oil refinery that looms nearby.
