Het Grote Gebod – L.O.

    Mayor and member of LO-Bergharen [1], which was part of the LO-District Maas en Waal. Arrested on March 6, 1944, because captured people in hiding had talked after severe torture. Read the following story from the Jan van Gelderstichting: [2]

    He did not hesitate to protest against the highest German authorities in our country when demobilized Dutch soldiers were imprisoned and young men sent to Germany for forced labor in 1943. He actively supported people who wanted to go into hiding in this community, which was going to be his undoing. When several people in hiding were caught in a raid, three of them admitted, after severe torture by the Germans, that Mayor Luske had mediated in their shelter. He was arrested on March 6, 1944, and arrived in Neuengamme [3] in Germany via Arnhem, Amersfoort, and Vught. In 1951 his remains were transferred to the Heilig Landstichting cemetery in Berg en Dal. [4]
