1940-1945. The resistance in the dutch province of Limburg



In Amstenrade lived Max de Marchant et d’Ansembourg, before the occupation leader of the NSB faction in the Chamber of Deputies. During the occupation, he was appointed Commissioner of Limburg. He was thus one of the two counts who played a role in Limburg during the occupation. Raphael de Liedekerke de Pailhe was a member of the Resistance.
Amstenrade Castle, where he lived, became an informal center of the NSB and the National Youth Storm, which came and went there. This organization was comparable to the Hitler Youth in Germany.
The young miners from the area regularly got into fights with these Blue Shirts. The sturdily built Hein Cobben from Vaesrade, a village nearby, was one of them. He did not survive it.
