    Frans Schreurs was a market gardener and farmer by profession. [1#2][1#4]
    Because Kessel repeatedly struggled with a lack of hiding addresses, several emergency camps were established in the surrounding forests. The Schreurs family cared for twenty-two people in hiding in the Timmermans-bosch camp and five in the Broek camp. [2]
    On November 14, 1944, Frans and his father Christiaan were arrested on suspicion of an assault in the forest near Kessel-Eik, near their farm. They were taken to the SiPo station in Venlo. There Frans was tortured and shot by SiPo man C. Schut.
    His name is on the war memorial in Kessel. [3]
    He is listed in the “Erelijst 1940-1945” (Honor Roll of the Dutch Parliament). [4]

    Reburied on the National Field of Honor in Loenen, grave E 1306 [5]
