    During World War II, four of the Vliexs sisters were in the Belgian resistance organization the Secret Army. Bertha was unmarried and worked as a nurse with the Red Cross. For more information, see also her sister Pia.
    She “lived in Maastricht”. … “Bertha, as her call name was, was executed together with her sister Josephine Alphonsina (Pia), among others. A total of nine people were executed, including the Belgian widow Maria Voorpijl (∗ November 13, 1897 Maaseik). All were accused of being members of the secret army”. (Traces of War [1]). The digital local edition for Oudsbergen of Het Belang van Limburg mentions Maria Hubertinia Voorpijl. [2]
    Their sister Alphonsine (Sieske) was liberated by the Russians in the Sachsenhausen concentration camp on April 29. She was more dead than alive, but had survived several hardships, including three different camps and a two-day escape attempt.
