    Evert Janssens was an office worker at State Mine Maurits in Geleen and lived at Annastraat 8. [1#3]. He had moved from Schaesberg to Geleen on August 30, 1941. Only on January 29, 1943 he was deregistered from this municipality as unknown moved.. [1#4]
    However, he had already been taken to Germany from the Maastricht prison on November 3, 1941. [1#2]
    But where did he end up? There was no concentration camp in Siegburg, but there was a prison. And from 1939 until the end of the war, several thousand foreign forced laborers were employed in Siegburg’s factories and mills. More than 400 of them perished. [2]
    On the plaque of the war memorial in Geleen Lindenheuvel [3] is written Janssens I. Could this mean Jelle?
    In 1955 his remains were moved from the Siegburg North Cemetery to the Dutch field of honor at the Stoffeler Cemetery in Düsseldorf-Oberbilk. There lie 1,230 Dutch war dead. [4]
    On oudstrijders-geleen.nl he is listed in the category Fallen in the Resistance, [7] but they do not say what this resistance consisted of. Until we know more about him, we call this unorganized resistance.

    He is listed in the “Erelijst 1940-1945” (Honor Roll of the Dutch Parliament). [5]
