    Probably also De Vonk, as he was arrested on June 19, 1942, because of his connections to the C.P.N. (communist party). Although he does not appear as a fallen comrade in the archives of the CPN, our list also mentions CPN with his name, as he was arrested along with CPN people.

    In a letter from the Red Cross to the family on October 25, 1945, it is assumed that he died in Neuengamme around mid-December 1944.

He is said to have been seen in Neuengamme in December 1944 ( Reveille of the Red Cross, number 11/12, 1946)
