war memorials in Maastricht
During World War II, more than 400 residents of Maastricht were deported and murdered by the Nazis. With a stumbling stone a lasting memory is created for these victims. In addition to Jews, Sinti and Roma, also the political opponents (resistance fighters) of the Nazi regime.

Two outstanding events are worth mentioning for Maastricht during the occupation:
On Tuesday evening, May 9, 1944, Jo Lokerman, the local leader of the LO, was lured into a trap by the traitor Gonnie Zeguers-Boere. Immediately thereafter, a large wave of arrests began in the city. More than fifty people were seized, seven of them lost their lives. See The Treason of Maastricht.
On Dolle Dinsdag (Mad Tuesday, september 5, 1944), the liberation of 80 prisoners finally succeeded. See: The raid on the Maastricht prison on september 5th, 1944.

The liberation of Maastricht took place on September 13th and 14th, 1944, by the Old Hickory Division. On September 14, Maastricht west of the river Maas was liberated.

∗ 1891-10-09
Hasselt (O)
† 1943-09-13
Horst (L)
Maastricht - L.O. - press - He was a bailiff at the direct taxes, married to Berendje Grolleman, belonged to LO-Maastricht. They were active in the distribution of underground papers such as Vrij Nederland and Trouw and participated in the founding of the L.O. in Maastricht. They were arrested on June 24th, 1943 for housing Jewish couple. Derk was interrogated for weeks by the SiPo in the detention center in Maastricht. However, he did not tell anything about the resistance people with whom he had collaborated. The Maastricht tax office offered the Germans in vain 40,000 guilders for the liberty of Derk. After an attempt by resistance people to liberate Derk, he was taken on September 14, 1943, early in the morning, to the woodland Schadijkse Bossen in Meterik. Because he continued to refuse to provide information to the SiPo, he was shot on the spot.
His body was dug up there in 1946. After identification, he was reburied in his birthplace Hasselt (Province of Overijssel). The municipality of Horst placed a memorial cross in 1946. For many years this cross was maintained by the Crosses and Chapels Foundation of Horst a/d Maas.
In 1963 the remains of Derk found a final resting place on the Field of Honor of the Stichting Oorlogsgraven in Loenen on the Veluwe.
There is a memorial in the tax office of Maastricht in honor of Derk and four more tax officials who lost their lives for our freedom.

Ravensbrück
- Maastricht - L.O. - press - Almost from the beginning of the German occupation in 1940, Berendje Grolleman (Berendina van Assen-Grolleman) and her husband Maastricht. They helped Jews and Allied airmen escape to the south. They were active in the distribution of underground papers such as Vrij Nederland and Trouw and participated in the founding of the L.O. in Maastricht. As a result of infiltration and treason, they were arrested on July 24, 1943, at their home at 124A Cannerweg, on charges including giving shelter to a Jewish couple. After a temporary detention in the Vught camp, Berendje was deported without trial to the Ravensbrück concentration camp in Germany. On February 18, 1945, she died of exhaustion under miserable circumstances. The location of her final resting place is not known.
It is a pity that Derk van Assen’s wife was not mentioned at the unveiling of the memorial cross in the Schadijk forest in Meterik. Her participation in the resistance, together with her husband Derk, is a common heroic deed.

† 1944-08-18
Zöschen, Kr. Merseburg
This person is not (yet?) listed on the walls of the chapel. - Maastricht - person in hiding - Johannes Aussems worked in the paper mill in Maastricht. His mother stated that he had to go to Germany (probably in February 1943) for forced labor. Police report after the war: "When her son came home from Germany on leave in May 1944, he was so emaciated from the hardships he had endured that his mother would not let him return to Germany.
As already mentioned, he was arrested by the S.D. on 7/7/1944." NA#5 [1]
A fellow prisoner told after the war that Johannes had died in the Zöschen penal camp for arrested persons in hiding [2]. As to the circumstances, he would only say that it had been "scandalous." NA#7 [1]. Maastrichtsegevelstenen.nl writes that he was "beaten to death" there [5]. The Zöschen camp was built by Dutch forced laborers between August and September 1944 [2.4].
Finally he was buried on the Nationaal Ereveld (National Field of Honor) in Loenen [3], grave E 1331.

† 1944-09-06
Leopoldsburg (B)
This person is not (yet?) listed on the walls of the chapel. - Maastricht - Belgium - Willem Debacker had a Maastricht mother and was born in Maastricht. That is why he is mentioned, by the way without any further comment, on maastrichtsegevelstenen.nl [1].
In the Netherlands, 6 September 1944 is called "Dolle Dinsdag" [7] (Mad Tuesday, english and french wiki available), but also in Belgium there was panic among the Germans and their Belgian collaborators because of the rapid advance of the Allies. Thus, 900 political prisoners locked up in the Cavalry Camp of the concentration camp of Beverlo were released by their German guards. Some of them were invited to a luncheon by the inhabitants of Leopoldsburg in a brasserie.
A group of Flemish SS men and a German soldier, fleeing from Antwerp on a bicycle, vented their frustration to 22 participants of this meal. Among them was Willem Debacker, one of the just liberated political prisoners. Why had he been in prison?

A few hours later Leopoldsburg was liberated by the Piron brigade. [2]
At www.wo2slachtoffers.nl we read the following [6]:

Lived in Leopoldsburg. Son of administrator Gerardus Johannes De Backer (born in Kortgene) and Victoire Adrienne Hélène Royen (born in Maastricht). Married. Day labourer. Roman Catholic. He was detained as a political prisoner. Debacker, as the Belgians write, is one of the 22 victims, who were shot on 6 September 1944 around 6:30 in the evening by some SS men of the retreating division Langemarck. At the approach of the Allied troops, 900 prisoners had been released that day. Residents of Leopoldsburg provided shelter for Debacker and a number of other former prisoners and gave them a good meal. During this ‘freedom feast’ SS men stormed in, herded the participants together and made them walk towards a canal. There they were shot. The part of the creek, where the drama took place, has since been called the Treurgracht(Mourning Trench) and the part of the IJzerlei, where the memorial with, among others, Debacker’s name is located, has been changed into the Martelarenstraat. The SS men involved were sentenced to death or life-long forced labor. About the killing of the 22 victims the book „6 september 1944 - De Fusillade te Leopoldsburg“ (6 September 1944 - The Fusillade at Leopoldsburg) by Marius Louche has been published [3].

Bartels,
Roelf H.
∗ 1868-09-25
Groningen
† 1942-12-14
KZ Neuengamme
Maastricht - press - Group Dresen - Factory owner, co-founder of the Dresen Group. Bartels and his wife Maria, 36 years his junior, had two stores in Maastricht, one in Heggenstraat and one in St. Maartenslaan. Captain in the reserve of the Dutch army. Despite his advanced age, Bartels joined the resistance. In his Tricotage house in the Heggenstraat, he housed sixty escaped Belgian prisoners of war who were then smuggled across the border. Bartels was also one of the key figures in the publication and production of the resistance newspaper Oranje Post. The first issue contained, among other things, the Guidelines for Good Dutch people that he had written. The resistance group was betrayed from within. More on this at Group Dresen. On December 12, 1941, the SiPo arrested Bartels. The resistance fighter ended up in the Neuengamme concentration camp. He died there a little more than a year after his arrest.At that time he was 74 years old.

This person is not (yet?) listed on the walls of the chapel. - Maastricht - Marcel Marie Jules Victor Bellefroid was a painter, watercolorist and illustrator in Maastricht. [1]
In October 1943, he was arrested and imprisoned by the Nazis in Amsterdam. None of the websites that mention him give a reason for this, but maastrichtsegevelstenen.nl calls him a resistance fighter. [4]

Because of the bad conditions during his imprisonment, an old illness came back. After 6 weeks he was back home in Maastricht and died shortly after of bone tuberculosis.

Berets,
Ernst
∗ 1898-10-16
Krefeld
† 1943-01-31
Auschwitz
This person is not (yet?) listed on the walls of the chapel. - Maastricht - Jew - On maastrichtsegevelstenen.nl [4] Ernst David is mentioned as a resistance fighter. Why? He came from a Jewish family with many children. His father was Dutch, his mother German. They had moved to Krefeld after the First World War and had a wholesale business with fruit and vegetables as well as a transport business. Ernst began spying for the Dutch consulate in the 1930s.
When their business was destroyed during the so-called Reichskristallnacht (November 9-10, 1938), Ernst and his wife Adèle fled to Venlo. Later they moved to Maastricht. From there, he regularly visited a pub in the Belgian town of Welkenraedt, west of the then still German town of Eupen, where the Aachen-Liège railroad line crossed the border. Since he spoke German without an accent, he was able to unobtrusively sound out the German train drivers about German train movements, cargo, and so on.
Arrested on May 18, 1940, during a visit to his mother in Amsterdam, on charges of espionage. On August 24, 1942, sentenced in Berlin to five years in prison with deduction of pre-trial detention. In December 1942, Ernst was transferred to Auschwitz. There he died of "heart failure" on January 18, 1943, indicating that he was shot by the executioner Walther Quakernack. [1]
On May 4, 2017, the Pentateuch, the five books of Moses looted by the Nazis from Fritz Berets’ brother, was returned in Maastricht to Alexander Berets, Ernst’s son. This Pentateuch had been discovered shortly before in the Judaica Department of the library of the Free University of Berlin. [2]

Beyleveld,
Johan
∗ 1916-03-21
Maastricht
† 1945-01-14
Neuengamme
This person is not (yet?) listed on the walls of the chapel. - Maastricht - person in hiding - Johan Beyleveld was a porcelain decorator in the ceramics industry of Maastricht. Probably to evade the forced Arbeitsdienst in Germany, he had gone into hiding. Is that resistance? In fact it is, maastrichtsegevelstenen.nl [6] finds. Also on the walls in the resistance monument of the province of Limburg (NL) are some people for this reason, but Johan is not among them. He was caught and taken to Amersfoort on August 28, 1944. There, in his file, the reason for his arrest is "Arbeitsverweigerung" (work refusal) [2]. On 6 September 1944, so on Dolle Dinsdag [7] (Mad Tuesday), a few days before the liberation of Maastricht, he was transported to Germany. [1] He died in Neuengamme as a result of ill-treatment, but the Sterbeurkunde (death certificate) states "Lungenentzündung" (pneumonia) [3]. There is an enigmatic stamp of the Bureau Bijzondere Rechtspleging (Bureau of Special Justice) in his file in the national archives [1] with the text: "From the archives housed at the Ministry of Justice it appears that during the occupation period the person concerned was guilty of political acting …(illegible) conduct, which led to the imposition of any punishment or measure by organs of the Special Justice, with a date stamp: April 22, 1958. After the liberation of the Netherlands, the purpose of this Bureau Bijzondere Rechtspleging was to try all those who had been guilty during the Second World War of, in particular, collaboration, high treason and war crimes. Even if that would have applied to this victim of Neuengamme, he could not be tried, because he was already dead.

Maastricht - Deputy Commissioner at the Provincial Registry, former Chief of Cabinet of the Governor of the Province of Limburg, executive secretary of the Crystal Soda factory in Linne. René van den Boorn lost his job at the province administration because the tennis club, of which he was president, did not allow the daughters of a German-minded magistrate to be members. According to oorlogsdodennijmegen.nl, he “resigned in 1941 as Chief of Cabinet at the Province, probably out of solidarity with the then Limburg Governor Willem van Sonsbeeck, who was despised by the Germans.” Worked for the intelligence service. Was a hostage in Haaren and St. Michielsgestel for quite some time in 1942 - 1943. Arrested as a result of treason on January 20, 1945, together with bank director van Lamsweerde, when attempting to break through enemy lines south of Roermond. Sentenced to death by summary judgment under the chairmanship of the infamous paratroop commander Major Ulrich Mathaeas.

Maastricht - early resistance - press - Group Dresen - Paulus Anthonius (Tom) Engeln, a shopkeeper and leather goods manufacturer living in Maastricht, was of German descent and divorced from a German wife, Betsy Wanger, with whom he had three children. In 1942 they were 4, 7 and 12 years old. In the back room of his shop, he printed the illegal newspapers “Vrij Nederland” and the “Oranje Post,” which were distributed through the Dresen group. He sheltered the Amsterdam Jew Isidoor Brandon, who also became his business partner, and Brandon’s girlfriend Cor Meijer. Brandon owed him money and was also afraid for his own safety. For this reason, he and Meijer betrayed Tom and the entire Dresen group. On Friday, November 28, 1941, he and several others were arrested. In the following days, almost the entire Dresen/Hage resistance group, twenty-three resisters, were arrested. The three most important members of the “Oranje Koerier” group, Pierre Dresen, Dirk Hage and Gerrit Spierings, were sentenced to death. Tom and eight others were sent to various camps such as Buchenwald and the "Nacht und Nebel" camp of Natzweiler-Struthof (Alsace) and eventually to the Ebensee concentration camp, where he finally died of exhaustion in the infirmary on April 27, 1945, a week before the camp was liberated. He was 43 years old then.

Maastricht - Jew - unorganized resistance - After their marriage, his parents moved to Kohlscheid near Aachen, where they opened a fabric store. The children Alfred and Carl were born there. In 1909 or 1910 the family moved to Rheydt, where Frederik (Frits) was born in 1918. In 1919 they sold the store and took a long vacation to recover from the flu pandemic. In 1920 they moved to Arndstrasse 30 in Aachen. (familienbuch-euregio.de)
They moved to Vaals in 1926. (herzogenrath.de)
"Frits lived as a student in The Hague and with his brother Alfred in (nearby) Voorburg. He completed an instruction as a radio technician at the school of Radio Holland. From December 1937 he lived for several periods with his mother, first in Tunnelstraat 2 and later in Raadhuislaan 13 in Geleen. In 1940 he lived with his fiancée Elfriede Gans in The Hague, but returned to Limburg for the wedding. They married on May 8, 1941, in Vaals, where Elfriede’s mother lived, and subsequently settled at Annastraat 24 in Geleen. That same month, Frits opened Radio Technisch Bureau F. Goldsteen, a repair shop and trade in radio parts and radios. In October 1941, their daughter Carolina was born in the Annastraat. On March 12, 1942, Frits had to close his store by order of the German occupiers; as a Jew, he was not allowed to build radios. He then found a job with a company that worked for the state-owned coal mine Maurits.” (stolpersteinesittardgeleen.nl).
During the war, he moved from Geleen to Maastricht and built radio transmitters for the resistance.
Arrested on May 15 (maastrichtsevelstenen.nl), or on May 19, 1942 (stolpersteinesittardgeleen.nl), or “on July 20, 1942, he was part of the group arrested in retaliation for unknown persons removing signs reading No entry for Jews. It is not clear whether the Germans knew of his resistance activities. Goldsteen was deported to Auschwitz with one of the first transports (July 16th).” (Herman van Rens Vervolgd in Limburg p. 105)

He was to play such an important role in the Dresen group that it is also called the Dresen-Hage group. He bought through L.F.R. Spierings from Rekem (Belgium) a spirit duplicator by means of which leaflets were produced. Initially, the device switched between Dresen, Hage and Bartels, after that it stood in the presbytery in Geulle at Droitcourt. Hage took the lead in setting up a Maastricht version of the "Oranje Post," a clandestine information bulletin.
He is listed on the memorial in the State Tax Office in Maastricht (see link).

Maastricht - early resistance - L.O. - Edmond Marie Hubert Ghislain Henri Houtappel was a wine merchant and ran a wholesale grocery store at Wolfstraat 8 (Fa. Wed. R. W. Hustinx, Koffiebranderij, groothandel in koloniale waren). Captain of the Reserve in the Dutch Army, he was in charge of the Wahlwiller Border Guard Company of the 13th Regiment of Infantry (on the border with Germany) during the mobilization of 1938-1940. In his military function, he photographed there, also on behalf of the Belgian intelligence, German positions in the Westwall (called Siegfried Line by the Allies). Via his brother-in-law Louis Evrard Hustinx, Belgian consul in Maastricht, this information was passed on to Brussels. His neighbor in Wolfstraat was the butcher Joseph W. Ummels. They had broken a passage between the two houses in the cellar, as a possible escape route. This was of no use. Arrested on May 10, 1944 as a result of betrayal by Gonnie Zeguers-Boere.

On December 8, 1940, he was arrested by order of the security police SiPo for helping communist refugees from Germany in the 1930s.
On February 28, 1941, five communists were arrested in Maastricht, allegedly on suspicion of involvement in the miners’ strike. More likely, this was a sign that the "friendship" between Hitler and Stalin was cooling (see below). In addition to Bèr Kraft, these were André Bos, Chris Heuts, J.J. Baartscheer, and Bernhard Holty. They were released after a month. In his house the clandestine magazine De Vonk was printed. On June 23 or 25, 1941, Lambert was arrested for the third time.This has everything to do with the German hunt for communists after the German-Soviet Non-Aggression Pact was broken.
He was imprisoned in Aachen, Maastricht, Schoorl and finally Neuengamme.

Maastricht - early resistance - L.O. - press - carillon - District leader of the LO in Maastricht. Unusual in the Catholic south of the Netherlands at that time: this district leader was not only a Social Democrat, but also a reformed “Hollander”, i.e. someone from “above the rivers”. “On May 11, 1940, a group of Belgian prisoners of war was brought to the station via the Wilhelminasingel. Thijs Lokerman, a train driver from Maastricht and member of the city council for the SDAP (Social Democrats), diverted the attention of some guards by a fake brawl with a friend, so that some POWs could escape. This may have been the first act of resistance in Maastricht.” (Mestreech online).
In his speech at the unveiling of the commemorative plaque at the Peace Carillon, Dr. Fred Cammaert said, among other things: “Maastricht resident and resistance pioneer Jo Lokerman worked as an engine driver on the Dutch railroads. At the beginning of the war, he began helping French-speaking prisoners of war, and later downed Allied airmen. Lokerman used his job to distribute illegal magazines on the trains and made connections with Belgian colleagues so that British and Jewish refugees could be transported by train to France and, if possible, Switzerland and Spain." (Cammaert VIb, p. 643.) He was also one of the founders of the Maastricht LO, which he headed for a time. As a result of betrayal by brothel madam Zeguers-Boere, he fell into the hands of the SiPo on May 9, 1944. (Cammaert VIb, from page 649)
He died in Neuengamme concentration camp in February 1945.

He was feared by the occupiers for his attitude, agitation, and expertise, and was arrested in late June 1940.

This person is not (yet?) listed on the walls of the chapel. - Maastricht - dutch soldier - Robert Herman Marie Regout was part of a twelve-man arrest team from the Binnenlandse Strijdkrachten that went to arrest NSB leader Anton Adriaan Mussert (born May 11, 1894 Werkendam - executed May 7, 1946) on Monday, May 7, 1945. It turned out that he had already traveled to The Hague the previous Saturday. Near the Rosarium (in Utrecht), the team encountered German soldiers pushing a vehicle. The Germans obeyed orders to stand behind the vehicle and lay down their weapons. At some point, a shot was fired. The German soldiers who were in the area responded in large numbers. The members of the arrest team were no match for the number of Germans. Only the two youngest members of the team survived the shooting. [2] Marjolein Bax [1] calls him Paul (a resistance name?) and writes: Paul Regout was killed in a firefight between BS-lers and Germans in front of the Rosarium next to the Wilhelminapark. The 27-year-old controller Paul Regout was a controller at the Nederlandsche Buurtspoorweg-Maatschappij. He was hit in the forehead and died.

- This person is not (yet?) listed on the walls of the chapel. - Maastricht - Herman Joseph Frederik Brinkman en zijn echtgenote Francisca Alberta Maria Rohling stonden op het moment van hun overlijden ingeschreven in het bevolkingsregister van Roermond. Het zijn dus oorlogsslachtoffers van Roermond. Alleen Francisca Alberta Maria Rohling heeft een connectie met Maastricht, omdat zij op 27 maart 1945 overleden is in een van de repatriëringsziekenhuizen in Maastricht.
In het boek ‘Het verborgen front’ van APM Cammaert valt het volgende over hen (en hun daden) te lezen: “Vanaf september 1944 tot 12 januari 1945 verscheen in Roermond ‘De Postduif’, een op een schrijfmachine vervaardigd krantje met nieuws over de geallieerde opmars, overgenomen van de BBC en radio Oranje. De makers wilden de in kelders levende bevolking van Roermond zo goed mogelijk op de hoogte houden van de laatste ontwikkelingen aan de fronten. ‘De Postduif’ kwam elke dag uit in een oplage van circa zestig stuks. Tot de makers en verspreiders behoorden de 70-jarige notaris HJF Brinkman, zijn dochter SMAJ de Puniet de Parry-Brinkman, A Raupp, ir. Schlösser en de Haagse onderduiker D Steenmeyer. Het echtpaar Van Leeuwen typte het blad in de woning van de begin mei 1943 terechtgestelde illegale werker MAM Bouman.
Op 12 januari 1945 troffen Duitse militairen een exemplaar van de ‘Postduif’ aan in de woning van Brinkman. De bejaarde notaris, zijn echtgenote F. Brinkman-Rohling en hun dochter werden hechtenis genomen en opgesloten in de gevangenis van Keulen. Daar ondergingen ze een zeer slechte behandeling. H. Brinkman overleed er op 5 maart 1945 en zijn dochter vijf dagen later. Mevrouw Brinkman kwam de doorstane ontberingen niet meer te boven. Zij stierf in maart 1945 in het ziekenhuis van Maastricht.”

During the occupation he was an collaborator of L.O. leaders like Father Bleys and Uncle Leo Moonen in Roermond. On October 6, 1944, he cycled with Pierre Gruijters to a farmer in Posterholt to collect food for the people in hiding, the so called divers. On their way, two SS men stopped the duo. In autumn 1944 the front was here. The two resisters refused to hand over their bicycles. The SS men found illegal magazines in Schols’ bicycle bags.
The two men were brought to a Gestapo station in Effeld, Germany, just across the border near Herkenbosch, for interrogation. After the interrogation, the chief Wilhelm Lammertz from Eschweiler gave the order to shoot Schols and Gruijters. That happened in the forest near Effeld. On June 23, 1945 Schols was buried in the family grave in the cemetery on Tongerseweg in Maastricht.

He was a propagandist for the Vereniging van Vrienden van de Sovjetunie (V.V.S.U., Association of Friends of the Soviet Union) and co-founder of the Maastrichtse Culturele Filmliga (Maastricht Cultural Film League). The league aimed to correct the negative image of the Soviet Union by showing Russian (propaganda) films and warning against fascism. (Cammaert X, p. 978 ff.). Arrested on May 10, 1940 for anti-German attitude. He was released on March 27, 1941, but his further activities were closely monitored. Since then he was involved in the distribution of De Vonk, the Limburg edition of De Waarheid. On June 25, 1942, the SiPo, in cooperation with the Ordnungspolizei, struck again and arrested at least 27 distributors of De Vonk, including Sonneville.

His butcher shop was a good hiding place for British pilots, Jewish families and young men who did not want to work in Germany. The store was always busy, and then it was not noticeable that many local strangers came in and out. Between his house and Mond Houtappel’s there was a breach in the basement that could be used in an emergency. But that did not help. Arrested on May 9, 1944 by betrayal of Gonnie Zeguers-Boere, who had a relationship with SiPo chief Strobel since 1942.
