Heinrich Stahl

 12-09-1902 Kohlscheid      ?
- NSDAP - Heerlen - Survivors -

    German mining engineer in Heerlen. He was married to a sister of Pierre Schunck. Worked at the coal mine already before the war and was also the director and co-owner of his father-in-law’s lime quarry in Geulhem. During the occupation, he became a member of the NSDAP (German Nazi Party) for career reasons and climbed to local party leader in Heerlen. During the raid at his brother-in-law he came in his nazi uniform to indicate: Here they are pro-German. After the war, expelled from the Netherlands as an unwanted alien.

    By the way, there are two mistakes in it:

    1. He did not operate the quarry in Kunrade together with his brother-in-law P.J.A. (Pierre) Schunck, but commissioned by his father-in-law, P.J. (Peter) Schunck. He did the same work for his father-in-law also in his quarry at the Meersenerbroek between Geulhem and Meerssen, see The “diver’s inn” in the cave on Meerssenerbroek
    2. Pierre Schunck did not get his resistance name from his brother-in-law Heinrich. They were not such good friends that Pierre would have wanted to take this risk.
