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

previousbacknext

Survivors

Most of the persons of this group appear in the history of Valkenburg and surroundings 1940-1945.
For the Dutch province of Limburg as a whole, the focus of this website is on the victims of the Second World War, and there especially on the victims in the resistance. But it is intended that in the long term also more survivors will be mentioned here. Because that will complete the picture, of course.
