The couriers delivered messages. Initially, this often happened by means of scribbles, but after several waves of arrest, people became more cautious. The couriers were people who could move unobtrusively. Usually this was done by bicycle and preferably by women, because it was not in the imagination of the Nazis that a woman would do such things. Or by a bus driver, such as Jules. Or Paul, who had to go to Heerlen every day for work.4 pers.
