Het Grote Gebod – L.O.

      Controller of the CCD. On Wikipedia NL it can be read about him: "As a controller he succeeded in misleading the occupiers by soaping the mouths and claws of confiscated cattle with soapy water in order to arouse the fear that these cattle could infect German cattle with the often fatal variant of foot-and-mouth disease. The healthy meat went to the resistance in this way." A similar story can be found on Meat Supply for the Submerged.
      Cammaert wrote about him: “Early on Thursday morning, August 10, Nitsch, assisted by four members of the Ordnungspolizei, threw Peter Hoebers and Peter Korsten out of their beds in Helden-Panningen. Korsten, father of thirteen children, however, had nothing to do with the combat groups (K.P.). The Korsten Nitsch was searching for was not P., but L. Korsten. Hoebers was the first to be taken out of his house and shot in front of it after Nitsch’s command run, run faster. The same fate befell P. Korsten. Their bodies were to be left lying in the street.” (Cammaert Chapter VI, p. 603)
      The Everlo Memorial in Panningen (municipality of Helden) was erected to commemorate 94 fellow citizens who died as a result of wartime actions during the occupation.
