    Jan Dieteren from Schinnen had been living in Maastricht since May 2, 1934[1#2], his wife was Anna Catharina DANIELS from Oud-Vroenhoven. [1#1][1#5]
    He was a miner at the Hendrik State Mine in Brunssum and was arrested for sabotage against the Germans. [1#3]
    He shows that since the end of the mine strike, resistance in the coal mines was far from broken. The mine strike was part of the April-May strikes [3] in 1943.
    He was taken away on August 28, 1944. His widow, who presumably filled out the form, assumes to Germany. [1#3]
    But he arrived in Neuengamme from Amersfoort on September 10, 1944. In Neuengamme he had the camp number 49702. [2]
    His name is on a monument at the Neuengamme Memorial Site, which is the former concentration camp. [4]
