      Seller of electrotechnical articles, lived in Swalmerstraat.His son wrote: "We lived opposite the Ortskommandantur (local army HQ), so if they wanted, the Germans were in our house within ten seconds. Fortunately, my father had a pre-war business friend at the Ortskommandantur who warned him when a raid was imminent. The walls between the basements in our neighborhood had been smashed in, so it was easy to get from our house through another house to a nearby factory. There they had machines with maintenance pits where you could hide. That’s where the people in hiding went in case of a raid, and these hiding places were never discovered. At some point, this German business partner was transferred and the work became too dangerous. As a result, my father’s resistance group went into the woods near the German border, where no one ever went and it was reasonably safe.” He continues, “My father’s resistance group was betrayed and he did not return from the concentration camp. We didn’t find out until months after the war”. Source: Blog van Toon Kasdorp - Het verzet. (Blog of Toon Kasdorp - The Resistance)
