Alphons Clemens Maria van Binsbergen (Fons)

 11-08-1909 Roermond      23-03-1945 Verviers (B) (35)
- Aid to People in Hiding L.O. - Roermond -

    The photographer Fons van Binsbergen and the printer M.H. Pollaert took care of the necessary forged papers and passport photos in Roermond. [1, p.299]
    There was a forgery group in Sittard, in which a photographer H. van Binsbergen participated. [1, p.268]
    The same surname, the same profession. Coincidence?
    The person in question was arrested by the occupying forces at the end of January 1945 for evading the obligation to work for the Germans in the municipality of Melick and taken to Germany, where he remained in prisons (including the notorious Klingelpütz in Cologne) until liberation.
    After liberation, he died of exhaustion in a transit camp in Verviers (B) on his way back home. He had been through a lot during his captivity and was completely weakened. There was nothing objectionable about him; on the contrary, he had a good reputation in every respect.
