All the fallen resistance people in Limburg
Since september 10, 1933, Giel Berix was a kapelaan (in the Netherlands a term for Roman Catholic auxiliary parish priests, vicars. In Belgium they are also called Onderpastoor) at St. Pancratius Church in Heerlen. 
Giel is a regional call name still very common at that time, standing for Willem or Gulielmus (see his In Memoriam card ). As a resister, he was known only by this nickname.
Like so many others, he began his resistance individually and early in the occupation, helping people in need. Then he founded during the first days of September 1943 the L.O.-district Heerlen  with others. Became district leader after rector had withdrawn for health reasons.

He is listed in the “Erelijst 1940-1945” (Honor Roll of the Dutch Parliament).
