The Putten raid (Dutch: Razzia van Putten) was one the worst civilian raids conducted by the Germans in occupied Netherlands during the Second World War. On 1 October 1944, a total of 602 men - almost the entire male population of the village - were taken from Putten, in the central Netherlands, and deported to various concentration camps in Nazi Germany. Only 48 returned at the end of the war. The action was undertaken as a reprisal for a Dutch resistance attack on a vehicle carrying personnel from the Wehrmacht.
