Memorial stone Jewish victims from Valkenburg

† ✡ † Jews Holocaust Allied soldiers USA RAF NL sold Verzet initial resistance L.O. K.P. municipality local contacts couriers occasional resistance people in hiding Valkenburg+ Valkenburg Berg en Terblijt Schin op Geul IJzeren Sibbe Margraten Houthem-St.Gerlach Geulhem Hulsberg Houthem † Valkenburg+ Klimmen Meerssen Heerlen police priests NSB / NSDAP


Of the Jewish residents of Valkenburg and the surrounding villages, approximately half did not survive the war. To see this, compare the number of the holocaust victims with that of the Jewish survivors. This list includes people who came from elsewhere and one who went into hiding in Heerlen, but under the protection of a citizen of Valkenburg. The source of this list is for the most part the work of Jan Diederen: his book 42 Jewish Valkenburgers arrested and murdered and the article Jewish victims in Valkenburg on the site of the Stichting Struikelstenen Valkenburg. See there for more information.42 pers.
