Kaspar Donners


 1908-08-02 Weiden (D)      1984-09-01 Heerlen (76)
- Valkenburg - Unorganized resistance -





      Farmer at the Koningswinkelhof, a traditional mixed farm. Neighbor of Pierre Schunck. Immediately joined in when he was asked by him to help in October 1942. They went with his horse and carriage to save valuable things from the Jesuit monastery that was seized by the SS. This was not yet an act of organized resistance, but it was a precursor, for Pierre Schunck too. We do not know whether the Donners family also hided searched people (the so called divers).
