    Hendrikje Smid was a daughter of Hendrik Jan Smid (1898-1961) and Geziena Hesse (1902-1968). [1]
    In the card index of CPN victims in Limburg, it is noted on her card that she worked for the CPN party newspaper De Waarheid (The Truth) and was arrested on February 2, 1941. After her release (ill) she died in 1944. She is not listed there as a party member, but as a “Waarheidsvriend” (friend of the truth). [2]
    Cammaert gives the date of her arrest as February 9, 1941, with the remark: soon released due to diagnosis of tuberculosis. For the period from 4 to 12 February, he lists 10 arrests of members and sympathizers of the CPN in Hoensbroek. [3]
    The mention of Hendrikje Smid on oorlogsbronnen.nl [4] is based on the above-mentioned archive. [2]
    Otherwise, no further details about her are provided anywhere. Perhaps because she died of t.b.c., which she had not contracted in captivity? It is not known whether her captivity exacerbated her illness.
