(Vandaag precies 68 jaar geleden op 1 oktober 1949 onthult koningin Juliana een monument ter nagedachtenis aan de slachtoffers van de Razzia van Putten. Het monument bestaat uit zandstenen beeld, ook wel ‘Het vrouwtje van Putten’ genoemd. Het stelt een vrouw in klederdracht voor met een zakdoek in haar hand. Op zondag 1 oktober 1944 hield de Duitse Wehrmacht in een groot deel van Putten en in een deel van Nijkerk een razzia. De mannen tussen 18 en 50 jaar werden de volgende dag allen gevangen genomen en weggevoerd naar het concentratiekamp in Amersfoort. Ruim 600 mannen werden op 11 oktober naar het concentratiekamp Neuengamme getransporteerd. De meeste kwamen om het leven, werden slachtoffer van ondervoeding, mishandeling, slavenarbeid, uitbuiting, besmettelijke ziekte of vonden de dood bij bombardementen. Slechts enkele tientallen keerden na de bevrijding terug.)
