The fallen resistance people in Limburg


Theo Treuen

 24-07-1914 Tegelen      17-09-1942 Amsterdam (28)
- Initial resistance - Group Smit - Voerendaal -


    The parental home of Theo (Theodorus Gerardus Johannes Peter) Treuen stood at Maasstraat 43 in Steyl. He worked in the butcher shop Leenders in Voerendaal and during the pre-war mobilization he was a soldier. During 1940 he was contacted by Jozef Smit, who had also been demobilized. Through Theo Treuen, the students Paul Leclou, A. Rameckers and H.H. Baeten were also included in the group Smit. (Cammaert II, pp. 109-110) An infiltrator betrayed the Smit group to the Germans. Theo was arrested in the butcher shop. On July 16, 1942, Smit and Treuen were sentenced to death in Amsterdam and the other members of their group to concentration camps.
