    The policeman Cor Noordermeer was the local leader of the Raad van Verzet (RVV, Resistance Council) in Deurne.
    After a raid on a food rationing office, Cor has to go into hiding. From then on, he is known in the resistance as Clement, named after his fiancée Clementine. When Cor and another resistance fighter travel to a meeting of the RVV in Utrecht, they are both arrested. Cor ended up in Vught via Scheveningen. He spent three days in the bunker in Vught and was interrogated twice for 24 hours. On August 11, 1944, Cor was shot by the Germans near the Vught camp. [1#1]
    The website states: The RVV was a loose association of scattered, independent resistance groups that, in the absence of national coordination, had to act completely independently. Working from their base at De Zwarte Plak in the Limburg village of America, members of the group aided downed Allied pilots and those in hiding. Together with the local radio service, information was gathered and exchanged.
    On May 13, 1944, through the intercession of their colleague José Peerbooms, ‘Don José’, Cor and Nico van Oosterhout were on their way to a meeting of the RVV in Utrecht. They did not return. Upon arrival at the Utrecht train station, both were immediately arrested by the Germans and taken to the Scheveningen prison, the Oranje-Hotel, for interrogation. There they were interrogated twice and tortured for 24 hours. Finally, they were deported to the Vught concentration camp, where they were shot at the execution site on August 11, 1944.
    The resistance held José Peerbooms (who had been under suspicion before) responsible for the arrest and liquidated him on July 13, 1944.
    In his file at the OGS there is a form (filled out by whom?) which states, among other things:
    was shot in Vught on August 11, 1944 and according to reports received after the war was cremated immediately afterwards. [3]
    His ashes are therefore in one of the ash pits of the crematorium at Vught concentration camp [1#3].
    The photo on the right is from the book Het grote Gebod (The Great Commandment). [4]
    His name is inscribed in the provincial memorial "De Brabantse Soldaat" in Waalre. [5]
    As section commander of the RVV Deurne resistance group, he was succeeded by Frits de Bruijn. [6]
    He is buried in the cemetery Oude algemene begraafplaats, Boschstraat, Zaltbommel. [7]
