After the attack on Rauter during World War II the Germans took reprisals. They deported 661 men from the village Putten in the Veluwe and destroyed a large number of houses. After the war the foundation Wederopbouw Putten (Reconstruction of Putten) started raising funds everywhere. The residents' association in Heemstede collected a lot of money for the construction of a house. A lot of these people have now come from Heemstede to witness the laying of the foundation stone. At the construction site a document is put in a grenade shell; this is then bricked in the foundation of the new house by women from Heemstede.
