- People in hiding - Forced Labor - Roermond -

    The basket maker [1] André Boijmans was one of people in hiding, who were arrested in Roermond after Christmas 1943 and ended up in the Arbeitserziehungslager Hunswinkel, where a barrage was being built. More info above the list of Roermond’s fallen.
    He was taken to Germany on January 6, according to a form in his file at the OGS (oorlogsgravenstichting, War Graves Foundation). It further reads: Died of exhaustion and malnutrition. The deceased were put in the earth near camp Hunswinkel in the same way as one buries cadavers. No graves were made! [2#2]
    On page 12 in that file we read that he ended up in the camp for forging his identification card and for refusing, to make baskets for bombs, so-called bomb baskets. (was betrayed)
    Was arrested on Jan. 6. 1945 and transported via Brüggen to Germany and ended up in camp Hunswinkel near Lüdenscheid, March 24, 1945.
    He is buried on the Dutch Field of Honor of the Düsseldorf-Oberbilk cemetery, grave C-2-21. [3]
    He is listed in the “Erelijst 1940-1945” (Honor Roll of the Dutch Parliament). [4]
